Rooster Fu Fighting Jinghong (Xishuangbanna) 2013 Water Splashing Festival

I was a bit surprised to see one of the Water Splashing festivities in Jinghong (Xishuangbanna), Yunnan, China was going to be Chicken Fighting.  I heard it was a cruel and brutal bloodbath.  It didn’t end up being quite as cruel as I thought, but it’s still not something I wholeheartedly agree with.  I was glad they mostly showed restraint and only allowed short bursts for each of the 8 Chickens they had on hand.
