Default Tire maker pulls the plug on Anti-hunting group

Tire Maker is On the Road Again with Sportsmen - (05/27) National

Michelin, a leading tire manufacturer, has decided to end its support of a national anti-hunting group after receiving numerous calls from sportsmen.

Michelin told the U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance that its sponsorship of the Red Star Emergency Services Division of the American Humane Association (AHA) would end at the conclusion of a bobble head promotion on June 25, 2004.

The U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance, a leading sportsmen advocacy organization, and other conservation groups had alerted sportsmen about the issue and urged them to contact the company.

Michelin’s program involved a $5 donation to the AHA from every Michelin Man bobblehead distributed between May 1 and June 25. The toys sell online and are free with the purchase of new Michelin passenger and light truck tires.

“Businesses are often uninformed about the actual agenda of animal rights organizations,” said Bud Pidgeon, U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance president. “Sportsmen contacted Michelin and let the company know that every dollar corporate America provides to fund animal rights groups’ programs represents money that is made available for campaigns to end hunting and trapping nationwide. To its credit, Michelin has responded to sportsmen’s concerns and is ending the relationship.”

The AHA opposes all hunting and trapping. It has demonstrated this opposition through support for federal legislation to ban black bear hunting using bait and support for state and federal legislation to ban trapping.

Sportsmen should thank Michelin North America for ending its relationship with a national anti-hunting organization by contacting Mr. James Micali, Chairman and President, Michelin North America, Inc., 1 Parkway South, Greenville, SC, 29615. Phone (864) 458-5000. Fax (864) 458-6359. Toll Free (800) 847-3435.

Wow, thats awesome. A company actually listens to the hunting public once in a while instead of the usual anti crap.
