Walmart Mexico Allegedly Hosts Cockfight
Wal-Mart Mexico is under fire for allegedly hosting a cockfight in one of its stores to promote a soda company.
The retailer could face fines of as much as 96,000 pesos ($7,240) if Wal-Mart Mexico, or Walmex, is found responsible, according to a local government official interviewed by Bloomberg. Betting on cockfights is illegal in the city of Boca del Rio, where the alleged incident took place.
Outraged animal rights activists posted pictures of the Sept. 15 event on social media and demanded action against the retailer.
