      MICHELIN TIRE MAN HAS HIMSELF IN HOT WATER

      A leading tire manufacturer, Michelin, has entered into a partnership
      with a national anti-hunting group, the American Humane Association
      (AHA). Michelin is donating $5 from every Michelin Man bobble head
      figure distributed between May 1 and June 25 to the AHA. The bobble
      heads are sold for $17.75 on-line and are available free with the
      purchase of new Michelin brand passenger and light truck tires.

      The U.S. Sportsmen's Alliance, one of the country's leading sportsmen's
      advocacy organizations, is urging outdoorsmen to contact Michelin to
      oppose its funding of the AHA.

      "Michelin's donation is earmarked for the Red Star Emergency Services
      Division of the AHA," said Bud Pidgeon, U.S. Sportsmen's Alliance
      president. "Whereas this might be a legitimate animal welfare program,
      sportsmen must make Michelin aware that every dollar Corporate America
      provides to fund animal rights groups' programs represents money that is
      freed up for use in national campaigns to end hunting and trapping."

      The AHA opposes all hunting and trapping and its recent anti-hunting
      positions include support for legislation to ban black bear hunting on
      federal and state lands.

      Sportsmen should contact Michelin North America and tell the company
      that its promotion of the AHA, an anti-hunting organization, is
      unacceptable to sportsmen across the nation and should be stopped
      immediately. Make sure Michelin knows that the AHA has an agenda to end
      America's outdoor heritage, thus destroying over 100 years of wildlife
      conservation practices. Such an outrage from sportsmen, one of the
      strongest and most powerful voices in the country, recently caused a
      leading pet food manufacturer to end its support to the Humane Society
      of the United States.
