15 Millon Rea$on$ Not to Give to HSUS

HumaneWatch AdI don’t need 15 million reasons not to give money to HSUS. However, I saw the HumaneWatch.org ad in USA Today and was glad they could do it. Hope it helps. The pic here is a portion of that ad. If you want to support your local animal shelter donate your money directly to them. You’ll help a lot more animals than HSUS does.

Here are the details from their news release.

Today, HumaneWatch.org, a project of the nonprofit Center for Consumer Freedom, is running a full-page ad in USA Today calling out the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and other co-defendants who last week settled a federal racketeering lawsuit brought by Feld Entertainment, parent company of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, for $15.75 million. The ad specifically focuses on HSUS and its CEO Wayne Pacelle, who were involved in an alleged illegal witness payment scheme to pursue malicious litigation against the circus.

The case originally stemmed from a complaint filed under the Endangered Species Act in 2000, alleging misconduct by Feld toward its Asian elephants. The U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia ultimately ruled the case was “frivolous,” “vexatious,” and “groundless and unreasonable from its inception.” Another animal rights organization – the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) – settled for an additional $9.3 million in December 2012.

The ad is viewable here.

The ad is headlined, “15 MILLION REA$ON$ Not to Give to the Humane Society of the United States,” and features a picture of Pacelle and an image of the actual check he personally signed as part of the alleged witness payment scheme. The ad then explains, “Last week HSUS and others paid over $15 million to settle a racketeering lawsuit that involved witness bribery and obstruction of justice. Support your local humane society, not HSUS.”

“This historic case has exposed the despicable tactics of the Humane Society of the United States and other animal rights fanatics,” said Will Coggin, CCF’s senior research analyst. “Americans should think twice before donating any money to HSUS. It’s likely not being spent on dogs and cats as HSUS’s ads lead people to believe.”

    you are disgusting – why don’t you try being a pregnant pig in a crate you CAN”T EVEN TURN AROUND IN then support your comment- let me guess- you are a fat rich while MALE who eats factory-farmed meat 7 days a week and lives a life of pure glutton- shame on you for not wanting to expose the REALITY behind dog-fighting, animal cruelty, and neglect. oh by the way- there is a direct link with animal abuse and misogyny so maybe you should go make sure a female somewhere get beaten or underpaid you asshole

      Kate…what you’ve just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul. (gotta love Billy Madison!)

    Congrats for the candid and accurate article, Chuck. GO HUMANEWATCH! First comment showed how you brought the “uglies” out. The animal rights brainwashed (usually negative social fringers, based on their hate-speech) can’t usually be civil when confronted.

    H$U$ is a PARASITE on society, working to destroy animal enterprises while using the donor dollars sent to help animals, not destroy the human/animal relationship.

    GO FELD! So glad the courts didn’t aid and abet the animal rights mafiosos in their many-year attack on a valued animal industry. The H$U$, et al, got off easy, so no wonder they settled (and NOT for the reasons they flimflam about). A conviction under RICO (which was looking pretty likely) would have destroyed credibility of these sociopathic AR organizations, plus damages could have been trebled—resulting in even more donor dollars spent on settling a frivolous lawsuit.

    So they had to pay nearly 16 million dollars,whoopy they still rake in 100 million+ dollars a year by millions of people TOO naive to know all they want to do is do away with all farming,fishing,domestic animal breeding/animal ownership,and anything that has to do with using animals. When it’s all over and done with Pacelle’s gonna be sitting on a Island in the Cayman Islands living it up. Seriously when are people gonna wake the hell up and smell what the HSUS is shoveling??? And PETA and the ASPCA are doing the same thing. The hsus is currently trying to get laws passed to regulate pet breeders everywhere,to require breeders to have to pay ridiculous licensing fees,etc. WHY? TO FORCE THEM OUT OF BUSINESS,SO NO ONE’S ALLOWED TO HAVE PETS…THE ULTIMATE GOAL OF THE ANIMAL RIGHTS CRIMINALS IS THE EXTINCTION OF DOMESTIC ANIMALS AND THEY’RE USING YOUR MONEY TO ACCOMPLISH THAT!!! Whenever they get involved in lobbying find out for yourself they are getting anti pet laws passed…their latest methods are getting mandatory spay and neuter laws passed-meaning EVERY dog and cat has to be spayed or neutered at a certain age and too many other moronic laws to name here. SERIOUSLY WAKE UP PEOPLE!!!

    The hsus should’v been destroyed long ago, I can’t tell you how many years they scammed millions of people (I’ll bet since the 80’s it’s been a billion dollars!)…this fact alone should’v put them out of business by now, and in jail. I can’t tell you about all the crimes they committed against farmers, fishers, hunters, zoos, pet stores, pet breeders and owners, etc. This story is good news but not as good as it could be if more and more people reported the crimes of these animal rights loons and sued them then they’d be out of business…hopefully they will be some day, FOR GOOD, I hope so.
