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.

Good POV and timing. Nice colors on the bull's body. Dramatic picture. I can see that the man's shirt is stuck to the bull's horn, is he okay?

Amazing colors.You really caught the moment!Well done!
So what is this tradition then if not bullfighting? Just escaping to the bull?

Poor bull, I never understood this abuse of animals.
But excellent shot, anyway.
