In the picturesque heart of the Swiss Alps, bovine beauties battle it out to be crowned the ultimate cow fighter. It’s an ancient tradition steeped in the lives of the Valaisan people.
As the festival kicks off, cows are solemnly led into an old Roman arena where the fights take place under the watchful eyes of thousands of spectators. “Injuries are very rare”, says Philippe Dorsaz, President of the organising committee. “It’s not comparable to bull fighting in Spain”.
