    The supreme court has this year banned the jallikattu.

    What a relief!! Those of you who have seen the poor bull who has been fed just about anything to intoxicate him would cry out in shame at the cruelty that man does to this poor animal...

    and finally when the poor beast is cornered .. there are over a dozen men torturing the poor bull as if they have indeed won a great battle.

    Thanks to all the animal activists who were tireless in their campaign .

    A small step won in our never ending journey to put an end to man's cruelty to animals

    Cheers

    50 injured at ‘jallikattu’
    Chennai,Jan 14, 2013, DHNS

    Despite “Pongal”, the traditional harvest festival, turning lacklustre in Tamil Nadu this year with many farmers in the Cauvery delta wilting under crop losses due to water shortage, the first major “Jallikattu” (bull-taming) event at Avaniyapuram in Madurai on Monday pepped up the festivities with a riot of colour and enthusiasm and injuring at least 50 people, mostly the bull-taming youths.

    In a sad twist, one bull emerging from “vaadi vasal” (gate) at the rear from where the bulls are released into the ring, broke its leg, sources said. Another bull, coming out after the fight, was killed when it hit a transport bus on a nearby road and later succumbed to its injuries.

    Showcasing amazing native versatility, the “Jallikattu” event held in the State, complying with the conditions imposed by the Supreme Court and Madras High Court, drew an over 5000-strong crowd to witness the incredible spectacle of men trying to tame some of the fastest and unyielding bulls for six hours.

    Even as the heavy bulls jumped and threw around themselves, it was a feat of mind over matter. The tamers valiantly struggled to catch them by the hump after one bull after another, participating in the “Jallikattu”, was let out by the organising committee members through the ‘vaadi vasal’. Strict double-barricading of the visitors’ enclosure was provided as per court’s diktat. At the end of the Avaniyapuram “Jallikattu”, Police sources in Madurai told Deccan Herald over telephone that 46 of the 50 injured who suffered ‘minor injuries’ were treated as out-patients at the venue medical camp itself. At least four other bull-tamers, who were badly hurt and found bleeding, as the fiery bulls’ horns tore through their skins.
