The festive atmosphere at a carnival celebration in India was disrupted by a shocking incident of a bull attack that left 14 people injured. The incident occurred in the city of Jaipur, Rajasthan during a traditional bull taming event that is part of the annual carnival celebration.
Eyewitnesses reported that the bull broke free from its handlers and charged towards the crowded stands where the spectators were seated. The panicked crowd tried to flee the area, but many were trampled and injured in the ensuing chaos. The bull continued to rampage through the area, causing damage to property and injuring people in its path.
Local police and emergency services were quick to respond to the incident, and the injured were rushed to nearby hospitals for treatment. The severity of their injuries is currently unknown, but it is reported that none of the injuries are life-threatening.
Bull taming events are a traditional part of many carnivals and festivals in India, but they have come under increasing scrutiny from animal rights groups who claim that they are cruel and inhumane. The Indian government has banned the use of bulls in such events, but they continue to be held in some regions.
This incident is not the first of its kind, and it highlights the need for better safety measures and regulation in such events. The authorities have promised to investigate the incident and take appropriate action to prevent such incidents from happening in the future.
