MISSOULA (AP) — Google Inc. has restored an advertisement from a Montana hunting group it initially rejected over animal cruelty concerns.

The Missoulian reported May 6 that the internet company restored a Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation ad Friday after receiving letters from Montana Congressional representatives.

The Missoula-based hunting advocacy organization says it was notified April 25 the paid advertisement was disapproved.

Google’s initial message says hunting promotion is considered “animal cruelty and deemed inappropriate” for its network.

The ad promotes a video showing a former foundation board member participating in a muzzle-loader elk hunt in New Mexico.

The foundation appealed to Republican Sen. Steve Daines and Rep. Greg Gianforte and Democratic Sen. Jon Tester, who sent letters defending Montana hunting culture to the California company.

Google did not respond to requests for comment.
