In the spirit of the Year of the Sheep, farmers at a village in Hua county, Henan province yesterday rounded up their finest fightin’ sheep and gathered among friends to cheer on the creatures as they violently rammed into each other until their horns fell off.
The Small-tail Han Sheep, known for their head-butting abilities, battled it out in front of hundreds of onlookers who were able to distinguish the animals by their drawn-on markings.
The sheep were then divided according to age and weight in the single-elimination match.
This is probably not what a certain political leader had in mind when he told his critics to “be more like sheep”.
