  • Tonino Mastrostefano sorts cattle during the team penning Masseria Cup in Piane Vomano on the outskirts of Notaresco, central Italy, Saturday, June 20, 2015. Italy may be better-known for its soccer skills, but on ranches across the country, cowboys are honing their skills of horsemanship and cattle management, and dreaming of taking on the Americans at their own game. Team penning and ranch sorting is believed to have started as a competitive sport in California in the early 1940s. Since then it has spread to countries with long traditions in cattle breeding throughout South America and Europe. (AP Photo/Domenico Stinellis) Gallery: Italy’s cowboys show off their skill

They appear to be largely unknown to those affected the most, the low-income people or immigrants who frequently fish in streams and lakes near urban areas to supplement their diet.
