Two killed in Indian bull-wrestling festival: report

In the Indian bull-wrestling festival Jallikattu, young men struggle to grab the bulls by their sharpened horns or jump on their backs as the beasts, festooned with marigolds, charge down the roadTwo people were gored to death Sunday in a bull-wrestling festival in southern India, a report said, a day after a ban on the controversial sport was overturned. Several towns and villages in the southern state of Tamil Nadu celebrated the popular Jallikattu festival on Sunday after week-long protests prompted authorities to approve an executive order lifting a Supreme Court ban on it. The Supreme Court last year outlawed Jallikattu after a plea by animal rights groups, which have long accused those taking part in the event — held annually across Tamil Nadu — of cruelty to the animals.
