Exposed: The Humane Society of the United States’ Anti-Hunting Playbook
May 21, 2014 By Larry Keane
The California Department of Fish and Wildlife has announced that it will be holding its second public workshop on June 3 to discuss the implementation of California’s new lead ammunition ban, signed into law last year by Gov. Jerry Brown after being championed by the Governor’s personal dog walker and Humane Society lobbyist . While this simple public forum may appear benign, this law (AB 711) illustrates the duplicitous work of the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS).
According to its website , HSUS is “the nation’s largest and most effective animal protection organization.” However, the group is not affiliated with your local shelter or dog and cat assistance agency. Earlier this year Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt issued a consumer alert about the organization’s fund raising tactics even as state residents were discovering their donations made to HSUS would not help animals displaced by the devastating Moore tornadoes.
