Urgent: Stop Bull Torture Festival!

According to news reports, India’s central government plans to amend The Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960, to permit jallikattu, bull races, and other events that use bulls.

Video footage from jallikattu events shows that terrified bulls are deliberately disoriented, chased, kicked, punched, jumped on, dragged to the ground, and stabbed. People even twist and bite the bulls’ tails to agitate them in this “bull-taming sport.”

PETA India has long campaigned against the use of bulls in such competitions. In 2014, India’s Supreme Court passed a judgment in favor of PETA India and the Animal Welfare Board of India confirming a ban on jallikattu, bullfights, and bull races.
