“Wrap Em”

ARGENTINA. Through Harold’s Lens:

Clouds of dust flying from the pounding hoofs of the galloping horse, the macho moustached Gaucho rips across the rich Argentina plain known as La Pampas.

A spooked wild animal tears ahead of him!

Rapidly swinging the bolas throwing weapon above his head, the Gaucho lets the bolas fly entangling the captured animal’s legs.

Made by braiding leather cords and attaching balls at the end of the cords, a bolas is a throwing weapon most famously used by gauchos in South America.
