Holiday Transfers thanked for removing suggestion to attend bullfight
24 June 2014
Holiday Transfers has been thanked for removing from its website a suggestion to "attend a bull fight".
Following an ICABS appeal in which we highlighted the cruelty of bullfighting, the airport transfers company deleted references to Spanish bullfights.
Responding to our appeal, a spokesperson stressed that the company "in no way endorses blood sports or any cruelty to animals".
Holiday Transfers' response is a big help to our ongoing campaign to encourage holidaymakers to avoid visiting bullrings.
We thank them for this compassionate move. Find out more about their airport transfer service (available in over 9,000 resorts and cities and 90 countries worldwide) at http://www.holidaytransfers.com
