APTOPIX Switzerland Cow Fighting
Two cows fight during the traditional annual "Combats de Reines" ("Battle of the Queens"), a cow fight in Aproz, western Alpine canton of Valais, Switzerland, Sunday, May 11, 2014. The Valais is home to a unique breed of cows, the Herens also called Eringer cows. Members of this bovine family are very robust and possess the singular characteristic of fighting among themselves to establish a hierarchy within the herd. During the combat the cows simply push forehead against forehead. (AP Photo/Keystone,Jean-Christophe Bott)
