Leading stag do company drops suggestion to visit bullfight
10 December 2014
A big thank you to the UK's leading stag do company for dropping a suggestion to "take in...traditional bullfights". Bath-based StagWeb deleted the content from its Marbella page following an appeal from the Irish Council Against Blood Sports.
In a tweet, the award-winning company which has served over 300,000 clients since 2002, stated that bullfighting "isn't something we offer [but] nonetheless we have triple checked & removed anything ambiguous".
StagWeb's response is a big help to our ongoing campaign to encourage holidaymakers to reject bullfighting.
We thank them for this compassionate move. Find out more about their stag packages at http://www.stagweb.co.uk/
