Humane Watch

HSUS? Fundraising For a Terror Group? Believe It.

If you subscribe to The New York Times, take a peek at our ad on page A13 today. We’ve uncovered some serious stuff. On Saturday, Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) Senior Vice President Heidi Prescott will deliver a keynote speech at the holiday fundraiser for a group called “The Humane League of Philadelphia.” Which sounds good. But it’s not. The Humane League of Philadelphia got its start as “SHAC Philly”—the largest and most active cell of a violent animal-rights group convicted on federal terrorism charges in 2006. And today we’re telling the media all about it.

Are you with us so far? The worst of the worst in America's bunny-hugger movement merely changed its name and suddenly became “The Humane League.” (Oddly, it was also known as “Hugs For Puppies” for a few years.) Its own president has been convicted of making terroristic threats against the children of a pharmaceutical company employee. HSUS apparently believes it’s appropriate to help this group collect up to $1,000 per ticket for its future “programs.”
We’ve compiled nearly 70 pages of documents supporting what we’re saying in this ad. These materials are housed on a new website that we’re calling HumaneWatch. Read More

Because of their name, the Humane Society of the United States normally gets an undeserving free pass because most people think they are related to local dog and cat shelters. Nothing could be further from the truth. HSUS is the richest animal rights group in the world and they do relatively little to help dog and cats. This group is currently working to eliminate animal agriculture in this country. And so far they have been very effective. Those of us in the ag industry need to get educated about this group and let everyone else know exactly who they are.
