On a day when the Supreme Court refused to vacate its order staying the Centre's notification lifting ban on the controversial bull-taming sport Jallikattu, PETA India said that it was relieved that bulls will continue to remain protected for now.
    
"After learning from various reliable news reports that TN CM J Jayalalitha has written to Prime Minister Narendra Modi requesting him to disseminate an ordinance allowing Jallikattu, PETA India fired off a letter to President Pranab Mukherjee urging him not to pass any such ordinance so that bulls can remain protected", a PETA India statement said.
    
The PETA India letter said, "We urge you (President) not to pass any ordinance allowing bull races, Jallikattu, bull fights or any other similar events or to allow the use of bulls as performing animals again under any pretext."    

The letter also referred to the Supreme Court refusal today to vacate its order staying the Centre's notification lifting ban on Jallikattu as also observations of the apex court before staying the notification.
