India's top court Tuesday stayed a government decision to allow a popular bull running festival to go ahead after animal rights activists challenged the move.With just days to go before the start of the festival in southern Tamil Nadu state, the Supreme Court issued a temporary stay order on the central government's decision to reverse a 2014 ban.The Animal Welfare Board of India (AWBI) had filed a petition urging the court to reinstate the ban on the festival, in which bulls are let loose and young men compete to subdue them.The harvest festival in Tamil Nadu will begin this Thursday.
