BAT FLASH! Countering Delta Airlines Promotion of Bat-Eating

What’s Going On?
In its October 2016 issue, Sky Delta, Delta Airlines in-flight magazine, published a particularly offensive article titled Dare-to-Eat-Foods, sub-headed “Looking to up your culinary fear factor? Give one of these five uncommon-in-the-U.S. items a try,” by  Andrew Zimmern. The article recommends hunting and eating bats, animals that are being over-hunted to the verge of extinction, some having already become extinct due to too many being eaten.

What To Do
Please contact their editorial department (click here) and let them know that you strongly disapprove of their story promoting bat-eating, that most species being eaten are already in alarming decline, some already extinct from too many having been eaten.
