Battle of the 'queens'
, May 11, 2014
Two Herens cows lock horns during the qualification round of the annual "Battle of the Queens", a traditional Swiss cow-fighting competition, in Aproz, in the western Alpine canton of Valais on May 11. The cows test their strength and fight for the herd's leadership annually at the alpine pastures. The competition continues until a new queen has forced all the other cows to retreat.
