I saw this on internet. I really hope that more people wake up, come to understand and begin to respect and treat all living beings in a more dignified and compassionate way…

“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.”

In the middle of the his fight Torero Alvaro Munera realized the injustice to the animal. From that day forward he became an opponent of bullfights.

Look, to be a talented person doesn’t make you more human, more sensible, or more sensitive. There are lots of examples of murderers with a high IQ. But only those who have a sense of solidarity with other living beings are on their way to becoming better people. Those who consider the torture and death of an innocent animal a source of fun or inspiration are mean-spirited, despicable people. Never mind if they paint beautiful pictures, write wonderful books, or film great movies. A quill can be used to write with ink or blood, and many terrorists and drug dealers of the 21st century have university diplomas hanging on the wall. The virtues of the spirit, that’s what really counts in God’s eyes. – Alvaro Munera

  1. Good for him. And these so-called followers of Jesus persist in torturing animals to death? Whether you believe in God, karma, or nothing, bloodsports are inhumane and totally unjustifiable. I’m living in Spain and fortunately, more and more people are against it. I’d like to think that as human beings, we evolve over time, not the opposite.

    It looks like the bull is saying, “How could you do this to me?”

    • Great to here that more and more people are against it, it’s really inhumane to do these things, and other, towards animals around the world.

“What do you think about this?”
