Hundreds converge in UP to watch traditional buffalo fight

Allahabad, Sep 07 (ANI): Hundreds converged in Allahabad to witness traditional buffalo fight, which is organised on the occasion of Lord Krishna's birth festival. The fight is organised annually and involves the use of specially reared animals which are provoked to duel.

The practice involves two buffaloes being incited to lock horns to claim an area. The buffalo that's pushed off the field is declared the loser.

The spectators were seen cheering and clapping during the battle. In the months preceding the event, buffaloes are fed with rich fodder and reeds of long grass typical of the state's marshy land to strengthen them.
