Holiday Hypermarket thanked for removing bullfighting references from website
22 April 2015
A big thank you to online travel company, Holiday Hypermarket, for removing a suggestion to "experience traditional Spain at a bullfight".
Following an ICABS appeal, in which we highlighted how cruel bullfighting is, the company deleted it, saying "we couldn't agree more - thanks for pointing it out". Also removed was a reference to bullfighting on a "Mexico for Culture Vultures" page.
Thumbs up to Holiday Hypermarket for its compassionate response.
