Bullfight is an ancient form of entertainment that prevails in many parts of the world. It still manages to draw a crowd in rural Bangladesh as seen in these pictures.
Bulls are especially prepared by their handlers to make them fight-ready. The charging of an enraged bull makes for spectacular entertainment. When two powerful bulls lock horns the crowd cheers in excitement.
Like all fights, bullfights can be a messy affair, both for the spectators and for the animals. Sometimes the animals charge at the crowd and injuries happen. Bullfights have also been criticised for endangering the well being of the animals.
