"The purity of a person's heart can be quickly measured by how they regard animals"

The final fight….

The Bullfighter SAID….There is a single moment when you see it and you can never go back. If you go back, then you didn’t see it. MAKE THE CONNECTION. “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.

    That is not Alvaro Munera. He was paralyzed at 18 yrs old and that ended his bull fighting career.

  2. Yes, that is true. He was paralyzed during a bullfight and has since become an advocate against bullfigthing. Truely an amazing story.
