These amazing Japanese have erected disgusting to the rank of sport and mass spectacle. Of course, because disgusting in japanese - this is rodeo on pigs, which requires the highest perseverance, speed of reaction and desperate courage. But it's fun!
Japanese disgusting became the property of the world community in 2009, when a video from a pig rodeo competition in the city of Seiyo, Ehime Prefecture, was posted on Youtube for the first time. Millions of Internet users, choking with laughter, watched the completely insane action, during which very serious Japanese people rode pigs. What kind of event is this and who needs it?
Pork rodeo - a traditional competition in Japan, during which ten specially selected pigs, as it should be in such competitions, try to saddle and curb the hunters for the 50,000 yen prize (about $ 750). If you have ever seen a pig running somewhere fast and purposefully, you will understand why even the most agile pig riders cannot stay on the hog's slippery back for more than 5 seconds. Most do not even last two seconds.
To participate in this annual swagger, the "athlete" will need only elbow pads, a helmet and knee pads. And, of course, the old truth does not lose its relevance: "To saddle a pig, you need to think like a pig." Although the Japanese pig rodeo was initially reproached for cruelty to our younger brothers, after understanding the problem, Western viewers realized that Japanese swine, like African zebu races, does no harm to animals. Rather, on the contrary, it helps pigs lose weight.
