Hays Travel thanked for removing bullfighting reference from website

happy bull copy

A big thank you to Hays Travel, the UK’s largest independent travel agent, for removing a reference to bullfighting from its website.

Following an ICABS appeal, in which we highlighted the cruelty involved, the award-winning Sunderland-based company deleted “bullfights” from the “Things to see & do” section of its Malaga page.

We are very grateful to Hays Travel for this compassionate response.

Hays Travel, with more than 100 branches around the UK and an annual turnover of over £650 million, describes itself as “a company with heart”.
