The traditional bullfights go back generations and are a matter of pride and prestige for the bull-owners, taking place each weekend and featuring two highly-prized bulls from different villages fighting each other until one flees in defeat, after having been fed a secret herbal concoction during the preceding day which often includes marijuana, known locally as bhang.

KHAYEGA, Kenya — If the U.S. presidential election were to be determined by a bull fight in Kenya then President Barack Obama would defeat Mitt Romney.

On Saturday, villagers from the western Kenya town of Khayega held a bull fighting contest between a 900-pound black bull they named Obama and a black and white 1,000-pound bull they named Mitt Romney.

After close to a half-hour the bulls were separated and Obama was declared winner.
