NetFlights thanked for removing suggestion to visit Mexican bullfight
11 August 2015
A big thank you to online travel company, NetFlights, for removing a suggestion to visit a bullfight in Mexico.
In an article entitled "15 reasons why you need to be in Cancun for Spring Break", it was stated: "If you have the stomach for it, you can watch a real bullfight in downtown Cancun’s own bullfighting ring". However, following an ICABS appeal, in which we highlighted the cruelty involved in bullfighting, the UK-based company swiftly deleted the reference.
Thumbs up to NetFlights for this compassionate response.
