Arrow Tours remove bullfight image
27 March 2008

The Irish Council Against Blood Sports has thanked Arrow Tours, for removing a bullfight image from its website and for pledging to delete it from the next edition of its European City Breaks brochure. The publishers of a Madrid guidebook distributed by Arrow Tours have also been praised for promising to remove a matador from the front cover.

Responding to an ICABS appeal, Brian Greene, a director of Arrow Tours stated: "I have been in contact with Metropolis International, based in the UK, who provide us with our citybreak guidebooks, and they confirm that on their next print run of Madrid guidebooks they will remove the bullfighting image that is currently on the front cover. Furthermore, I confirm that on the next print run of the Arrow Tours brochure we will also remove the Madrid bullfighting image."

"Neither Arrow Tours nor Metropolis International wishes to be associated with cruelty to any kind of animal and we give this undertaking as a sign of goodwill towards your efforts," he added.

ICABS is delighted at this positive response from both companies.
