World’s Richest Anti-Hunting Group Spending Big To Help Clinton, Democrats

posted on October 20, 2016

The political arm of the Humane Society of the United States—whose merger with the Fund For Animals made it the biggest anti-hunting lobby in the world—is spending more than $600,000 to support ballot initiatives and anti-hunting candidates, mostly Democrats, in this year’s elections, Guns.com reports

In announcing its support for Hillary Clinton—only the second presidential candidate the group has ever endorsed—HSUS chief Michael Markarian wrote, “The next president will have an enormous impact over animal protection in this country.” 

HSUS tricks many Americans who believe they are supporting their local animal shelter into giving money, when in reality, HSUS spends only 1 percent of that money on shelters but spends millions on anti-hunting lobbying and political activities, from banning lead ammunition for hunting, to pressuring airlines not to transport trophies, to banning or blocking Americans from hunting everything from mourning doves to wolves and bears.
