HSUS plays dirty in legal game; SCIENCE DIET DOG FOOD donates $$ to HSUS !!!!
http://www.macon.com/2010/03/14/1057489/animal-rights-lawyers-a-three.html Again, http://humanewatch.org Martosko tells the truth, this time in Georgia.
Since the vegan firebrand Wayne Pacelle took the reins at HSUS in 2004, for instance, that organization has beefed-up its legal department ten-fold, from three lawyers to 30.
Why would the group behind those doe-eyed “save the puppies” TV infomercials need its own mid-sized law firm?
Because its leaders aim to completely remove things like livestock, lab mice and lambskin from society. One particularly efficient way to do that is to repeatedly sue your opponents.
In 2006, HSUS sued a New York duck farm that produced foie gras — not under an animal welfare law, but under the federal Clean Water Act. HSUS isn’t an environmental group. What was going on?
The animal rights group’s lawyers acted as though they cared deeply about the water quality of the Hudson River. But HSUS had also sued New York’s Empire State Development Corporation to stop it from helping that same duck farm upgrade and expand its water treatment facilities.
Catch the irony? Playing both sides of the environmental lawsuit game was really just a convenient way to bankrupt the farm, one of only a handful like it in America.
Animal rights lawyers are currently forced to conjure up creative ways to litigate, but that could soon change. ( See above link for entire story.)

You click on the cute doggie, and Hill’s donates to HSUS:
Your free click generates a donation from Hill’s Pet Nutrition to support the HSUS. You may click once a day, every day. 100% of the donations raised go directly to The HSUS, which advocates for local humane societies and operates its own network of animal sanctuaries …
