Vikram Thiru started this petition to United States Supreme Court and

 Jallikattu (Tamil: சல்லிகட்டு, sallikaṭtu) also known Eruthazhuvuthal (Tamil: ஏறுதழுவல், ērutazhuval) or Manju viraṭṭu (Tamil: மஞ்சு விரட்டு), is an ancient bull taming ritual required for reproduction of cows and bulls which is required Tamil Nadu as part of Pongal celebrations on Mattu Pongal day. It's a living ancient sport of our Tamil culture. Jallikattu enthusiasts and native cattle breeders claim that PETA India is against indigenous native cattle breeds and they are responsible for the reduction of the cow to bull ratio, which has seen a reduction after 2004. They claim Jallikattu will preserve the native cattle breeds from extinction, and already one of the beautiful cattle breed Alambadi is now officially extinct. Both PETA India and Jallikattu enthusiasts have defensible positions. Source: wikipedia
