Beasts of Burden in Afghanistan by VICE correspondent Gelareh Kiazand

VICE correspondent Gelareh Kiazand searches Kabul for illicit gambling rings where men bet on quail fights, buzkashi (it’s like polo, but with a headless goat), and dog fights. But first she has to find Dardar, the only figure in Kabul’s gambling world who can get our crew into the betting circle.

In part 2, it’s off to the Ka Faroshi bird market, where rival teams prep their fighting quails for the next morning’s match.

VICE correspondent Gelareh Kiazand meets the men who dedicate their lives to the breeding, training, and gambling involved in dog fighting in Kabul.
