Hotel chain quits animal rightists
The national Accor Economy Lodging hotel/motel chain has responded to a flood of calls and letters from U.S. sportsmen and is discontinuing its partnership with the nation's largest animal rights group, the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS). So says the U.S. Sportsmen's Alliance, a hunting advocacy organization that has led the fight to get Accor Economy Lodging to stop helping HSUS.
Accor, whose properties include Motel 6, Red Roof Inns and Studio 6, are affordable motels utilized by many sportsmen while on hunting and fishing trips. Alliance Vice President Rick Story said, "Hunters, trappers and anglers from across the country made a point to contact Accor to help its administrators better understand where a promotion of the Humane Society of the United States could lead. It will not lead to the salvation of millions of homeless dogs and cats, but it could easily lead to the downfall of outdoor traditions enjoyed by millions of sportsmen."
Hunters and anglers might want to thank Accor Economy Lodging for its decision. Contact George Le Mener, President and CEO, Accor Economy Lodging, P. O. Box 809092, Dallas, Texas 75380-9092, or send him an e-mail c/o Kelley Johnson at [email protected]
