The organization’s lawyer, Mr. Fido Schwartz, Esq.
I’m all in favor of anti-cruelty laws and reducing animal testing where not really needed, but some of these people simply go too far.
In a speech at the second annual ”Taking Action for Animals” conference in Washington D.C., Wayne Pacelle, President of the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) committed to redoubling the animal rights group’s efforts against modern animal agriculture. Pacelle indicated his belief that there is little difference between animals and humans. To support his position he used research that showed similarities between humans and non-human primates then asserted that the concept could be expanded to include any animal.
He urged the audience to continue pursuing animal guardianship laws to replace animal ownership laws. Pacelle suggested using the term ”Canine Americans” instead of dogs to emphasize the rights of these animals.
