How to Pronounce Rutting?

Correct pronunciation for the word "Rutting" is [ɹˈʌtɪŋ], [ɹˈʌtɪŋ], [ɹ_ˈʌ_t_ɪ_ŋ].

"Rutting" in context

Rutting is the seasonal behaviour of deer, where males compete for dominance to access female mating regions. This behaviour usually occurs during the autumn and winter months and involves a variety of activities such as: fighting, posturing, and scent marking. Stags engage in parallel walking, circling, and antler clashing as a way to assess their competition and display dominance. The dominant stag is more likely to mate, thus ensuring the perpetuation of their species. The most dominant stags usually establish mating territories known as "leking grounds", where they will attract females and mate with them, away from the other males.
