The Supreme Court has issued a notice to the Tamil Nadu government on a petition filed by people for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) India challenging the new law on Jallikattu, the bull-taming sport.

A Bench, led by Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra, gave the government four weeks to respond to the petition, which is annexed with videos of brutal treatment of bulls in Jallikattus held across five regions of the State. It has tagged the petition with others filed against the Jallikattu law.

PETA has included an investigation report containing videos and photographs of jallikattus conducted in February 2017 in Avaniapuram, Palamedu and Alanganallur in Madurai district; Thirunallur in Pudukkottai district and Maravapatti in Dindigul district.

The Supreme Court has so far refused to stay the Tamil Nadu law — Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Tamil Nadu Amendment) Act of 2017 and Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Conduct of Jallikattu) Rules of 2017.

PETA said its probe "re-confirmed" that "jallikattu takes advantage of bulls' natural nervousness as prey animals by deliberately placing them in a terrifying situation in which they are forced to run away from those they rightly perceive as dangerous and a threat to their lives."
