Natarajan added Wednesday’s festivities will see almost double the number of bulls and competitors in the ring. Further in past years, competitors have been gored to death by bulls. Moreover during the festival in Tamilnadu bulls festooned with marigolds are released from pens and men try to grab their horns to win prizes such as scooters and white goods.
