The annual Rapa das bestas, or horse-wrestling festival, was held earlier this month in Galicia, Spain.
People gather all the untamed horses in a corral, where men and women of all ages wrestle them to the ground with their bare hands to cut their manes and tales out and brand them. This fiesta goes on for about three days starting the first Saturday of July.

The whole world, not just Spain, needs to catch up to the new age. Let's try to leave the beasts alone as much as we can; that is really how we can make their lives better.
