The vegetarian bullfighter
Published on:Monday, October 3, 2011 - 17:02
Álvaro Múnera was once "El Pilarico" the star bullfighter. Then in 1984, he was gored by a bull which left him confined to a wheelchair. Today he’s a staunch animal rights defender and works to have bullfighting banned.
He tells host Jonathan Groubert about his bullfighting career, the attack that changed his life, his recuperation, the woman who called him a murderer and how he became an anti-bullfighting campaigner.
