Did not know where else to post this. It made me sad.
Facebook, Comment to photo:
Yes, I know this is off topic, but I felt compelled to share it, as the message is strong, and we are a compassionate group.
According to Snopes, and contrary to 'Facebook legend' this photo did NOT mark the end of Matador Torero Alvaro Munera's career. However, he did collapse on this day, in remorse and in mid-fight, when he realized he was having to prompt this otherwise gentle beast to fight.
*Even grievously wounded, the bull did not attack Munera.*
I posted this to show the beauty of this animal. Perhaps it will trigger some to stop and think about the welfare of our non-human species. I don't know. It would be nice to think Munera stopped after this fight. It wasn't until later he decide to become an activist against bullfighting.
Thanks to all here who provided more information about the photo. -LS
