By now you will have all heard about Wayne Pacelle, CEO of HSUS, saying that convicted dog torturer Michel Vick “would do a good job as a pet owner.” HumaneWatch has followed the story and the fallout closely, first here and then here.The comment is preposterous of course and HumaneWatch wonders if Humane Wayne has gone completely crazy. There has been a lot of negative press for HSUS as a result and it is helping to raise awareness about just what the HSUS does with all their money.
The Daily Caller profiled the Pacelle/Vick comment in the larger context of exposing the lies HSUS shills on a daily basis. In a piece titled FoodPolitik: Farmers shouldn’t own animals, but Michael Vick can. Excuse me?, writer Rick Berman tells readers that the HSUS is NOT an umbrella organization for local pet shelters.
“We all want cats and dogs to find homes, and to not be abused. About 99.99 percent of us, for instance (HSUS’s president notwithstanding), understand that giving Michael Vick a pet will always be a risky proposition.
But it turns out that America doesn’t actually have a real “national” humane society. There simply is no big umbrella group that raises money for the pet shelter in your community. If you want to support your local humane society, you’re going to have to do it yourself.”
Also today, CFB Member Mark Hillman sat in as a guest host on 850 KOA’s Mike Rosen Show. His guest was David Martosko, the man behind Humane Watch. The pair discussed HSUS and their tricks extensively and callers responded well to the conversation. You can listen the the segment here, or click the play button below.
