As much as I try to understand other cultures, there are limits.
Case in point:
Chinese spectators smile sadistically at the inhumane spectacle of two beautiful horses savagely attacking one another.
With ears back, eyes rolling and nostrils flared in fury, the enraged horses pummel each other with their hooves and bite and head-butt each other in a horrifying fight, sometimes to the death.
Men, women and children watch, and a roar of approval goes up as one horse delivers the equivalent of a double-uppercut to its opponent with its hind legs.
The cruel "sport" of horse fighting has been outlawed almost worldwide, but it still thrives in countries like the Philippines, Indonesia, South Korea and here in China, as these disturbing images of a "tournament" prove.
I've given PETA abuse for some of their antics before, but I find myself in their corner on this one.
