ADI applauds BA's quick action to remove bullfighting mentions from website

Posted: 16 November 2007

Animal Defenders International is delighted with the swift response from British Airways to ADIs letter of protest that BAs website was promoting blood sports as a tourist attraction, in particular, bullfighting festivals in Ecuador.

ADI is very grateful to BAs chief executive for his speedy reply and for taking immediate action to have all articles referring to bull fighting on BAs website removed. In addition he has introduced measures to ensure that this does not recur in future.

ADI said that BA is to be congratulated that all mentions of bullfighting in Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, Peru, Portugal and Spain have been taken off BAs website.
