Photo of the Day: What in the world?

Update: The photo is from Pakistan.

These dogs are not fighting over a piece of bone. It is part of a common practice in the country depicted, where locals form a human ring to watch specially trained dogs tear into each other until they are covered in blood.

Can you tell us where this photo was taken? As always, feel free to tweet your responses at @Postworldnews using the hashtag #whatintheworld.
