The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) tries to present itself as a group who helps pets that have been neglected and abused. The reality is they’re an anti-hunting extremist organization that drops more cash attacking the NRA and hunters than it does supporting its purported cause. As has been widely reported, less than 1 percent of HSUS’s annual budget goes to pet shelters.
Instead, they find their money is better spent creating political ads like this one, which has been ripped by real animal protection advocates. The ad targets state Rep. Val Hoyle, who is running for secretary of state in Oregon, and ends with a message of “No to the NRA and no to Val Hoyle.” While Hoyle may have killed the 2015 ivory trade bill, she was all-too-happy to accept a $250,000 “reward” from Michael Bloomberg for helping to pass Oregon’s universal background check bill.
