We all know they have trouble telling the truth. We all know they are good at making videos. We all know they think convicted dog fighters make great pet owners. We all know they want to stop animal ownership in the USA.
Pacelle said the agreement (back room deal) in August 2010 with ex-Gov. Strickland and the Ohio Farm Bureau Is how they controlled the board.
“Ohio moves to phase out cruel confinement of farm animals. As part of an agreement brokered between the HSUS, leading agricultural groups and former Gov. Ted Strickland, the Ohio Livestock Care Standards Board approved new standards to phase out veal crates and gestation crates for breeding pigs and to prohibit new egg operations from confining laying hens in cages.” (www.humanesociety.org/about/overview/2011_accomplishments.html.)
Thanks to HSUS, we now know the truth that HSUS has true control over the OLCSB, they even say so on their own website (taken directly with no editing).
I don’t understand why Ohio farm leaders sit on their hands and let the HSUS control Ohio farmers. One would have to ask themselves, whose side are they on? If Ohio doesn’t stand as one we will stand empty handed when it comes to our animals.
This in not a broken record, we have to stand as one, fight for our farms, our animals, our incomes, or we will become one more state losing our family farms to HSUS. We need to stand up and fight. We need to make sure the direction Ohio ag leaders are taking is one that is for the U.S., not HSUS.
If Ohio falls to HSUS it will be a sad day in this great state. Ohio’s farms have a backbone, they need not sit on their hands and think the leaders of this state have their back. We have seen in the past not to trust them. This is our way of life; this is how we feed our families.
We must make them accountable for their actions. We have a voice, be heard. Call them and let them know how you feel. Don’t let this state become a victory for HSUS.
