Anti-Hunting Group At Bass Pro Shops Store Declared Unfortunate Error

Friday, June 9, 2006

NRA-ILA was recently made aware of a situation in which a Hampton, Virginia-area “Bass Pro Shops” (BASS) store allowed the Society For the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA)--an organization completely opposed to hunting--to participate in a “children’s day” at the store.  When contacted by NRA-ILA, Bass Pro Shops’ Corporate Headquarters staff gave their assurance that they were indeed informed of the incident and that they had taken steps to insure it would not happen again.

Larry Whitely, a spokesman for BASS, told NRA-ILA that as soon as BASS found out SPCA had been allowed to set up at the store to conduct its activities, they contacted the store manager and took corrective action.  BASS has informed all of their store managers that anti-hunting groups, including their local affiliates, will not be allowed to participate in store activities or operate at store locations.

Bass Pro Shops should be commended for taking such fast and decisive action to remedy this unfortunate error. 

Bass Pro-Shops is one of the nations leading retailers of hunting supplies and firearms and is a strong partner in the fight to protect our hunting heritage.
