Bull Fight


Bull fighting is one of the old and less known traditions in Turkey. Turkish bull fighting is different than the spanish one. Bull are classified by their size and weights and they fight each other, not with a matador. Fight ends when a bull starts to run away from its opponent. In these fights there are always a lot of officers in the field in order to control bulls. Mostly there is no real protection walls between crowd and the fighting field so officers try to keep bulls out of the crowd with sticks and ropes. Constantly bulls are running into the crowd and hurt many people.
