Humane society launches attack on hunting contests

I've never had any respect for this organization . It's ALL about the money . Animal welfare is a distant concern . Now they launch a campaign to attack hunting contests , one of which is Coyote contests ! I guess since one of the coyotes favorite diet choices are stray cats , it cuts into their profits ?

HSUS is generally against having animals as pets and do not believe animals should be bred to be pets or working animals. That includes cats and dogs. Many confuse the local Humane Societies with the national Humane Society of the United States. They are two different organizations with vastly different missions. HSUS has cleverly used the Humane Society in their name as a way to get donations from folks thinking they are are donating to Local Humane Societies.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Most people who donate to them think they are rescuing animals, which they are not. They are a lobbying organization and if their donors would look into the salaries of the people who run the organization I doubt they would continue. Pacelle used to work for the Fund for animals, that outfit didn't disguise what they were like the HSUS,

Humane Society CEO: The $4 Million Man

4millionmanIn a recent interview, HSUS CEO Wayne Pacelle was asked “how were you motivated to enter the field of animal welfare?” As one might expect, Pacelle replied “compassion for animals.” But Pacelle left out another huge motivating factor—his salary and benefits are really sweet.

Since 1994, Wayne Pacelle has raked in nearly $4 million as an animal-rights activist. In fact, according to HSUS’s most recent tax forms, Wayne Pacelle received $356,305 in compensation from HSUS in 2013—a salary that puts him in the top 1% in more than half of the states in the country. So his nickname of Wayne “1%” Pacelle refers to two meanings: His income ranking, and also the amount of HSUS’s budget that is given to pet shelters.

Because HSUS raises the money to pay for his fat-cat salary by running advertisements that mislead its donors, Pacelle must be laughing all the way to the bank. We have pasted the breakdown of Pacelle’s salary so you can see for yourself how much he has profited off his animal-rights work.

One noteworthy point: It is interesting that Wayne Pacelle’s compensation jumped by nearly $80,000 in tax year 2012. Regular readers may remember this as the same year that HSUS quietly sent $26 million to the Caribbean for “investment.” Was that a major raise-gaining achievement? Let’s not forget a local magazine’s profile of a day in the life of Pacelle: Writing a blog, having a couple of meetings, working on a book deal, getting a latte, and doing a radio interview. Tough stuff, there.

Our examination of Wayne Pacelle’s compensation over the years makes one thing clear—for a guy who hates farmers, he is a total cash cow.
