Dear gentle blog reader,
As a vegetarian and animal lover, I’ve always been horrified by bullfighting. Now, at least one former bullfighter, is too — I wish more bullfighters and the people who watch these atrocities would do the same!
”And suddenly, I looked at the bull. He had this innocence that all animals have in their eyes, and he looked at me with this pleading. It was like a cry for justice, deep down inside of me. I describe it as being like a prayer – because if one confesses, it is hoped, that one is forgiven. I felt like the worst shit on earth.”
This photo shows the collapse of Torrero Alvaro Munera, as he realized in the middle of the his last fight… the injustice to the animal. From that day forward he became an opponent of bullfights.
