Virulent Anti-Hunter Named Humane Society of the U.S. CEO You may recognized the name Wayne Pacelle of the Humane Society of the U.S. (HSUS), largest and best funded animal extremist lobbying group. Long known for his virulent anti-hunting views, Pacelle has been designated the next HSUS CEO and will assume that office in May. Here are some of Pacelle's personal statements and items from HSUS's website: "If we could shut down all sport hunting in a moment, we would." "Our goal is to get sport hunting in the same category as cock fighting and dog fighting. Our opponents say that hunting is a tradition. We say traditions can change." "Only 7% of Americans are hunters. That means there are more of us than there are of them. It is simply a matter of democracy. The majority rules in a democracy. We are going to use the ballot box and the democratic process to stop all hunting in the United States... We will take it species by species until all hunting is stopped in California. Then we will take it state by state." "The vast majority of species that are huntedwaterfowl, upland birds, mourning doves, squirrels, raccoons, rabbits, crows, coyotes, etc.provide minimal sustenance and do not require population control." HSUS Website 2003 "Waterfowl, pheasant and dove hunting are no more than shooting at living targets." HSUS Website 2003. These radicals must be stopped! Help elect sportsmen supportive legislators.
