Abercrombie & Kent thanked for removing bullfight references from website
24 June 2014
Villas and chalets holiday company, Abercrombie & Kent, has been thanked for removing references to bullfighting from its website.
Following an ICABS appeal in which we highlighted the cruelty of bullfighting, the Cheltenham-based company deleted a suggestion to attend a bullfight as well as details about bullrunning and bullfighting in Pamplona.
Responding to our appeal, a company spokesperson said: "You’re absolutely right. Thank you for making us aware. These posts have now been edited."
Abercrombie & Kent's 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 luxury villa and chalet holidays at http://www.akvillas.com
