Wayne Pacelle, president and CEO of The HSUS in Washington, DC, has started writing a blog on dogfighting, farm animal abuse and plenty more. His most recent postings include:

NFL Star at Center of Dogfighting Investigation: “He denies any wrongdoing, but the information that has come to light looks awfully incriminating … “ (posted May 15)

Alternatives for Pigs Crammed in Crates: “We are breaking through on the issue of intensive confinement of farm animals … “ (posted May 14)

Long Battle Results in Law Against Animal Fighting: “Last week, President Bush signed the Animal Fighting Prohibition Enforcement Act … “ (posted May 11)

    It’s amazing to me that so many people who mean well and truly care about animals continue to think that Wayne Pacelle of HSUS and Ingrid Newkirk of PETA are on the same side you’re on. By their own quotes, they make plain that their agenda is to end your ability to own a dog or cat or any other animal for that matter. HSUS does not run one single animal shelter (excepting a horse refuge in Texas). They spend their money pushing anti-pet legislation (like California AB 1634), which seeks to destroy our ability to continue to have pets. WAKE UP!! Pacelle & company are NOT your pet’s friends.

    Quotes by Ingrid Newkirk – President of PETA:

    “In the end, I think it would be lovely if we stopped this whole notion of pets altogether.”
    — Newsday, Feb 1988

    “There is no hidden agenda. If anybody wonders about — what’s this with all these reforms — you can hear us clearly. Our goal is total animal liberation. [emphasis added]”
    — “Animal Rights 2002” convention, Jun 2002

    “One day, we would like an end to pet shops and the breeding of animals. [Dogs] would pursue their natural lives in the wild … they would have full lives, not wasting at home for someone to come home in the evening and pet them and then sit there and watch TV.”
    — The Chicago Daily Herald, Mar 1990

    And echoing that train of thought, here’s your buddy, Wayne Pacelle’s take on the issue:

    We have no ethical obligation to preserve the different breeds of livestock produced through selective breeding. …One generation and out. We have no problems with the extinction of domestic animals. They are creations of human selective breeding — Wayne Pacelle
