Herens cows square off during a bout at the finals of the traditional mountain sport of Combat des Reines. Some bouts can be deadlocked for as long as 30 minutes as the animals seek to force back their opponent. Combat des Reines is a cow fighting competition held annually in the Valais canton of the Swiss Alps. Six cows will be crowned queen in front of an audience of 12, 000 people during the event that is covered live on national television in both French and German.
