Herd of PETA 'Bulls' Gather Outside Indian Embassy

3 years ago by officialpeta, PETA (People for the Ethical Treatm

As India's central government considers weakening laws that prohibit cruel events such as bull races, bullfights, and jallikattu—in which bulls are chased, kicked, and punched—a herd of PETA "bulls" is set to converge outside the Indian Embassy on Thursday. Bearing signs in Tamil, Hindi, and English that proclaim, "Please, Mr. Modi, Keep Ban on Jallikattu, Bull Races," the protesters will call on the prime minister to maintain the existing protections for animals.

"There's no excuse for the physical torment of sensitive, intelligent animals in jallikattu and other events," says PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk. "PETA's motto reads, in part, that 'animals are not ours to use for entertainment,' and that's why we're calling on Indian authorities to stay with the times and offer bulls the protection they deserve."
