Matador sees the light

According to theTelegraph a terrified Christian Hernandez dropped his red cape and ran from the charging bull during an event at the Plaza Mexico in Mexico City on Sunday.

He was arrested after the bullfight following complaints by organisers that he had breached his contract. He was later released after paying a fine.

The torero, who was badly gored in the leg during a bullfight several months ago, admitted that he had lost his nerve and would now retire from bullfighting altogether.

"There are some things you must be aware of about yourself," he said. "I didn't have the ability, I didn't have the balls, this is not my thing."

Good boy. I hope you find a better life than one that involved killing bulls

He didn't do it to save the bull, but himself.

True but at least he won't be doing it again.. which is a step in the right direction!
