This letter is in response to the Humane Society of the United States.
People are killed each day on a bicycle. We do not ban them. People are killed each day on a motorcycle, and we do not ban them.
Ohio remains one of the many states that does not share the views of HSUS. We like to eat meat, drink milk, have pets and fish.
The Animal Welfare Act, a true affiliation with the U.S. government, ensures that all animals, exotic or domestic, are housed safely and humanely.
This is a free country. HSUS members are entitled to their opinions. That does not entitle them to hold our agricultural community hostage to get what they want.
Their goal is to make it impossible for the agricultural community to survive — making us all vegetarians, as they are.
When the governor sat down with HSUS, he opened the door for all animal rights groups to hold Ohio hostage, taking away our right to vote on HSUS’ upcoming ballot campaign.
For every animal incident, exotic or domestic, there are thousands cared for better then most children in the state. We don’t ban that.
