Ostrich wrestling was invented in 1930, in Africa. It was the first animal wrestling sport invented; really it was made out of a mixture of stress from the war, and boredom.
The origin of ostrich wrestling comes from two men who were angry at each other, but were unfortunately pacifists. They needed a way to get each other, without hitting each other. So they went out on a search to find animals, strong animals, willing to fight.
They considered lions, but they realized that the lions may go after the people, instead of each other. So they continued searching, and they finally found the answer, ostriches. They were big, they were strong, and just what the two men needed. So one man went his way, and the other his way.
They problem was, they were both pacifists, so they didn’t really know how teach the ostriches to fight. During the first round of this “sport” or “competition” if you want to call it that, the ostriches just stood there, looking around.
They tried whipping the, but that just made the ostriches chase after the one who whipped them. Finally, the two men got other men to train the ostriches to fight each other, then the second round came, and well . . . the ostriches did go after each other, for a little while, but then they started going after the men, because they remembered they were the ones who whipped them.
Ostrich wrestling really never took off the ground, and was outlawed after a month of the men trying to get the ostriches to fight. So it was short lived, but one of the men had this to say, “Ouch.”
So ostrich wrestling never became a sport, the two men are still angry at each other to this day, no one knows why they are angry, they just are. Thank you for reading.
*NOTE: NONE OF THE PREVOUS DOCUMENTED CASES YOU JUST READ WERE TRUE. THEY DIDN’T REALLY USE OSTRICHS. THEY USED GIRAFFS. THAT DIDN’T GO TO WELL EITHER AT ALL . . .*
