PETA INDIA’s Evidence

PETA India's Evidence Proves Tamil Nadu's Law Failed to Protect Bulls and Humans

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India is releasing the findings of its investigations of nine recent jallikattu events which prove that there was cruelty to bulls and disregard for human life there. PETA India plans to submit its findings to the Supreme Court in support of its ongoing case challenging the constitutional validity of the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Tamil Nadu Amendment) Act, 2017, which permits jallikattu in Tamil Nadu. PETA India documented the cruelty – which was observed during events in four districts of the State between 14 and 28 January 2018 – in detail in a report and in video footage.

*Bulls were hit, whipped, and poked with metal and wooden sticks inside the vaadi vaasal, and their tails were bitten, twisted and yanked to force them to run towards the menacing crowd.
*Bulls’ nose ropes were roughly yanked, causing their nostrils to bleed.
*Panicked bulls fled onto village streets, injuring spectators and even goring them to death.
*Onlookers hit and jumped onto bulls fleeing the collection yard– an illegal practice known as “parallel jallikattu”.
*Bulls sustained severe injuries and collapsed.

“Year after year, investigation after investigation reveals the same thing: deliberate cruelty, injury, and deaths are inherent in jallikattu, and no amount of regulation can change that, which is why the Supreme Court had banned it in the first place,” says PETA India CEO Dr Manilal Valliyate. “India’s true culture is one of kindness to cattle and respect for life – not forming a violent mob to bully terrified animals.”

Since Tamil Nadu began allowing jallikattu in 2017, at least 26 humans – including a police officer and a teenager–have been killed, and more than 2,500 have been reportedly injured. At least 10 bulls have also died in this time, and other bull deaths likely go unreported.

A 2014, Supreme Court ruling (in AWBI v A Nagaraja &Ors) upheld that jallikattu was “inherently cruel” and therefore illegal under The Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (PCA) Act, 1960, thereby striking down the Tamil Nadu Regulation of Jallikattu Act, 2009, which aimed to allow the races. The State’s effort to overturn this ruling in its review petition was dismissed by the court on16 November 2016. In 2011, the central government banned the use of bulls in performances through a notification issued under the PCA Act, 1960.

PETA India’s motto reads, in part, that “animals are not ours to use for entertainment or abuse in any other way.”
