NEW DELHI: Animal rights group PETA today said it will move to the Supreme Court challenging the legislation passed by Tamilnadu and Karnataka state assemblies allowing Jallikattu and Kambala respectively.

"We will challenge the legislations in the Supreme Court. We will do it in the next few days. We are consulting our lawyers on whether to challenge both the state laws together or separately," Manilal Valliyate, Director of Veterinary Affairs at PETA India, said.

Jallikattu is a traditional bull-taming sport in Tamil Nadu, while Kambala is a buffalo race in Karnataka.
