Jallikattu is an Indian ritual that involves hundreds of men attacking terrified bulls that have had chili powder rubbed into their eyes and been given large amounts of alcohol.
The men surround the bulls, hit them with their fists and twist and sometimes even break their tails in attempts to wrestle the bulls to the ground. Regulations and bans have been put in place to keep bulls safe and stop Jallikattu but they aren't being enforced.
This ritual is a danger to animals and people as well. Hundreds of participants and spectators have been injured during Jallikattu. Some have even died. Help send a strong message to the Indian Tourism Minister. Urge him to enforce the ban on Jallikattu in India!
Dear Indian Ministry of Tourism,
The Jallikattu ritual is dangerous for all who are involved. Both participants and spectators are susceptible to injury and the bulls are abused beyond measure.
The current ban on Jallikattu does not mean anything if it is not enforced. Bulls are subjected to horrible things like having chili powder in their eyes and being forced to drink alcohol.
Please help protect bulls from abuse and keep public safety intact by enforcing the Jallikattu ban in India.
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
