Urgent: Urge India to Keep Bulls Protected and Stand by the Ban on Bullfighting and Other Cruel ‘Sports’

Bullocks are abused in cruel jallikattu events

 

In 2014, compassionate people all around the world celebrated when India’s Supreme Court confirmed the ban on the cruel “sports” of jallikattu (or bull taming), bull racing and bullfighting.

But now, according to news reports, it looks like that progress could be undone. India’s central government plans to amend The Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960, to once again legalise these events in which animals are barbarically abused for entertainment.

      – In jallikattu events, video footage shows that terrified bulls are deliberately disoriented, chased, kicked, punched, jumped on, dragged to the ground and stabbed, and people even twist and bite bulls’ tails to agitate them.

      – During bull races, bulls are often hit with nail-studded sticks and pushed beyond the point of exhaustion.

      – In bullfights, a round ends when one of the bulls either is killed or manages to flee.

PETA has long campaigned against the use of bulls in performances. Please help us to protect these animals!
