Why did the Indians use a bola?
Used most commonly by the the South American gauchos
Gauchos use bolas to capture running cattle or game.The thrower grasps the bolas either by one of the weights or by the center of the cords. He gives the balls momentum by swinging them and then releases the bolas. The weapon is usually used to entangle the animal's legs, but when thrown with enough force might even break the bone.
