Brutal bull fighting is livelihood for some in rural Haiti

A man yells as he and others gather to watch two bulls made to fight each other in Leogane, Haiti. Matches typically end when a bull retreats, although the animals are often injured from the fight.

Hehe! It's almost a tradition on the face of the earth. Aside from Nigeria, the bull fighting culture is also been practiced in Haiti. 

In rural Haiti, gambling extends beyond slot machines and poker tables.

The Haitian tradition of fighting bulls is similar to a cock or dog fight, but on a larger scale, as the animals are bigger and the stakes higher. More than a century old, bull fighting is a casual pastime for some men, but for many it is a means to pay for a car, food, or their children’s schooling.
