Bull Butting in Fujairah

July 30, 2011

We were on the road from Kalba to Fujairah yesterday when we noticed a crowd of spectators by the roadside. We pulled over to see a bull butting event going on.

Unlike the Spanish bull fighting which could be bloody, bull butting is only about two  bulls locking their horns against each other, and pushing their rival out of the inner arena. He who gets pushed longer loses.

The arena is just fenced by low metal bars and many spectators are even inside the arena.
