The taming of the bull…

The taming of the bull…
Participants try to control a bull during the traditional sport Jallikattu. The event is held on the occasion of the harvest festival of Pongal in Tamil Nadu. This is one of the oldest sports seen in modern times. Fighters and muscular wild bulls – often pepped up with large amounts of homemade liquor, dash after each other on the streets of the city. The aim is not to kill the bulls but to dominate and tame them, pluck away bundles of money or other treats tied to their specially sharpened horns. The Supreme Court banned Jallikattu in 2007, saying it was cruel as fighters and spectators have been gored or trampled to death and the number of injured has often run into the hundreds. That ban was watered down and the court said the event could be held under strict government vigil.
