A strange sport

Vocable (Anglais) - - À 360° -

Mud cow ra­cing, known lo­cal­ly as 'pa­cu ja­wi', is a tra­di­tio­nal sport that dates back hun­dreds of years and is be­lie­ved to have been in­ven­ted as a way for far­mers to pass the time bet­ween pad­dy sea­sons. Pho­to­gra­pher and tea­cher Leo­vin Agus­tim, 34, was able to take dra­ma­tic pho­to­graphs of the event in the Ba­tu Sang­kar region of West Su­ma­tra, In­do­ne­sia, as bulls were pa­ra­ded around the vil­lage be­fore ta­king part in the of­ten dan­ge­rous race.
