巴厘岛斗鸡场 惊吓指数暴表 | Cockfight in Bali

从乌布回返Nusa Dua的路上,我们经过了一座开放式的庭院,里头除了有群贩卖蔬菜水果与肉类的小贩外,还有一群嚷嚷的围观者。好奇的我们请导游停车,下车前往人群走去。

在印尼,斗鸡这违法活动,仍然受当地人欢迎。

We were on our way back to Nusa Dua from Ubud, and happen to spot this open-air market where there were crowds of frenzied men.

Despite being banned since 1981, our guide told us that cockfighting (Tajen) is still very popular in Indonesia, especially among the middle-aged and elder folks. joojourneys_bali_rooster_fighting_crowd

 

主持人邀请参赛者(主人们与他们的斗鸡)到场中央,然后请观众下注,把气氛炒得沸沸扬扬。

According to phototramp.com, there are two circles of betting. The official one with bets in the range of 20 to 300 thousand rupiahs where the winner doubles the money remitting 10% to the organizer/temple, and one-to-one betting with negotiable wagers and odds.

The fights are lightning quick, with usually one dead or both animals injured.

My take: The atmosphere was electrifying, full of anticipation and excitement. Although we didn’t understand what the locals were saying, you can totally sense their eagerness to get the match going. However, it was a little cruel & scary to see the roosters killing each other in a matter of seconds. (not for the weak-hearted maybe).
