    Background: RAM FIGHTING, WHICH HAS BEEN THE SUBJECT OF A NUMBER OF PROTESTS FROM AUSTRIAN ANIMAL LOVER' SOCIETIES, WAS A HIGHLIGHT OF THE ANNUAL GAUDER FESTIVAL IN THE TYROL THIS WEEKEND.

    HUNDREDS OF TOURISTS CROWDED INTO THE PICTURESQUE LITTLE VILLAGE FOR THE CENTURIES-OLD FESTIVAL. THE FESTIVAL HAS A COLOURFUL PARADE WITH THE LOCAL PEOPLE AND VISITORS WEARING GAY NATIONAL COSTUMES.

    AFTER THE PARADE, THE CROWD MOVED TO A NEARBY FIELD, WHERE THE RAM FIGHTING WAS SCHEDULED. ALTHOUGH THE ANIMALS BUTTED EACH OTHER WITH A SOUND THAT RANG ACROSS THE FIELD, THEY SHOWED LITTLE SIGH OF DISCOMFORT. IN CASE OF INJURY A VETERINARY EXPERT WAS IN ATTENDANCE.

    IT IS GENERALLY BELIEVED THAT THE FESTIVAL HAD ITS ORIGINS IN AN ANNUAL BUSINESS MEETING OF FARMERS FROM THE VALLEY. A SPECIAL CASK OF BEER WAS BREWED FOR THE OCCASION. THE BEER IS STILL ONE OF THE HIGHLIGHTS AND IS SERVED WITH A FEAST OF SAUSAGES.
