Latest Jallikattu Investigation Proves Yet Again That Laws Fail Bulls and Human Participants 

From January to February 2019, PETA India investigated seven jallikattu events, in the following locations: Avaniapuram, Palamedu, and Alanganallur (in Madurai district); Keelapanaiyur and Viralimalai (in Pudukkottai district); Ulagampatti (in Dindigul district); and Alagumalai (in Tiruppur district). 

This investigation reconfirms that this violent pastime takes advantage of bulls' natural uneasiness as prey animals by deliberately placing them in a terrifying situation in which they're prompted to run away from those they rightly perceive as a threat. The evidence – in the form of photographs and video footage – demonstrates that bulls are poked and jabbed with sticks and sickles, hit, jumped on, tackled, bitten, and treated in other cruel ways.
