Co-operative Travel has been thanked for responding to an ICABS appeal and removing bullfighting-related content from its website.
The move came after we highlighted the cruelty of bullfighting and pointed to a Co-op Group statement which outlines that "we’ve long known that animal welfare is important to our customers" and "whether it’s the environment, animal rights...we want to make sure you can do business with us without worrying about where your money is going".
"It is entirely incompatible with your stated concerns about animal welfare to publicise one of the world's worst acts of cruelty to animals - a bloodsport which involves the slow torture to death of bulls," we stated in our appeal.
Removed from the Co-op Travel website was a suggestion that those holidaying in Spain could visit a bullring and "become one of the fans applauding the bravery of the matadors".
ICABS is grateful to Co-operative Travel for its positive response. Find out more about Co-operative Travel at www.co-operativetravel.co.uk
A big thank you to Abbey Travel for removing references to bullfighting from their website. A company spokesperson agreed that bullfighting is cruel and that the inclusion of the bullfighting references was a complete oversight.
An Abbey statement outlined that "up until recently, there was no mention of bull fighting on our website" but that after a re-launch of the site, some third party content which mentioned bullfighting was inadvertantly used.
"We do not agree with promoting bullfighting," the spokesperson added. "All references have been removed."
Thank you, Abbey Travel!
