Photographer's Note

As might be expected, injuries and even deaths occur in Jallikattu. In 2006, at least 5 people were reported dead and several hundreds injured in various villages. Unlike in bullfighting, the matador does not kill the bull. However, there are cases of accidental bull deaths. Several animal activists object to this dangerous game every year, but so far these objections have been in vain.
