Village geese head for showdown

Sunday, 28 March 2010 08:29

Forty pairs of ganders took part in traditional geese fights. Their goose girlfriends and residents of Nizhny Novgorod villages were among the audience.

Under the rules of the tournament only ganders are allowed to fight; the female geese can only support them. The winner gets a tasty prize, and his master gets a cash reward.
The geese fights have already become a good tradition in the Nizhny Novgorod Region. Such competitions were even held during World War II.
