A gory fight to the death between snarling dogs and captured wild boars.
Gathered around a bamboo-walled arena, Indonesians in this remote part of Java island seem eager to watch the blood-curdling contests, known locally as 'adu bagong' (boar fighting).
Totally not cool in our opinion.
Dog breeder Agus Badud's family sit near the cage of their dog during a fight contest between dogs and captured wild boars, known locally as 'adu bagong' (boar fighting), in Cikawao village of Majalaya, West Java province, Indonesia, September 24, 2017. "I take part in this contest to increase the selling price and economic value of my dogs, and it would be useless for me as a breeder if I did not participate in a contest like this," Badud said in his house where he keeps 40 dogs.
