, May 5, 2013
Two Herens cows lock horns during the qualification round of the annual "Battle of the Queens" cow fight finals in Aproz, in the western Alpine canton of Valais May 5. Each year when taken to the alpine pastures, the cows test their strength and fight for the herd's leadership. The competition continues until a new queen has forced all the other cows to retreat. - Reuters/Valentin Flauraud
