This photo purports to show the end of Matador Torero Alvaro Munera’s career. The story goes that he collapsed in remorse mid-fight when he realized he was having to prompt this otherwise gentle beast to fight. He went on to become an avid opponent of bullfights. The bull, even seriously wounded by picadors, did not attack Munera. About the moment captured here, Munera is said to have said, “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.” Really warms the cockles, doesn’t it? But is it true or is it bull? Let’s find out at Snopes.
