Bull Racing

The celebrated yet cruel tradition of Javanese bull racing

Bull Racing The bull racing final in Java may attract thousands of spectators, but the event is marred by cruel practices and the controversial participation of children.
The bulls are primed for victory with blessings from priests and a diet of up to 100 eggs a day. However, their treatment on the day is not so benign and a variety of ploys are adopted to ensure they heave their child-driven carts down the track the fastest.
