“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.
Update: I’m not the original author of this. I saw it reposted on Facebook and posted it over here (which is why the entirety of it is in quotes). It turns out this story isn’t entirely true. According to Wikipedia he became paraplegic after a bull threw him into the air, and he broke his vertebrae upon landing.
Even though it doesn’t seem to be a picture of Munera, the image is quite striking.
