Washington, DC –-(AmmoLand.com)- The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) continues to discover new ways of advancing its agenda. Recently, the HSUS purchased stock in two major restaurant chains, Steak and Shake and Jack in the Box.

HSUS staff has made clear it intends to use its position in the companies to shift how they do business.

According to Matthew Prescott, corporate outreach director for the HSUS’s factory farming campaign, “As a shareholder, the HSUS hopes to work with the [companies] on making meaningful animal welfare reforms to benefit animals and shareholders alike.”

“This is shocking, apparently if one fails to do what HSUS says is right, they become a target for a hostile takeover,” said Bud Pidgeon, U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance president and CEO. “This move is further evidence that HSUS is a special interest group bent on changing how Americans live.”

to John649: the reason I refuse to treat animals HUMANELY is that they are not human, and thus can NOT be treated "humanely". Does this mean I advocate unnecessary cruelty to animals? No…… certainly not. But until YOU lot realise they are not human and stop insisting on their being treated as such, you will likely remain upset your private (and minority) agenda is rejected. Hunting is not cruelty, letting wild animals outbreed their habitats is. Natural predators are far more "cruel" to game animals than any hunter's bullet. Have your whinge elsewhere. Grow up and stop forcing your strange… Read more »

What is worse?

Hunters that are honest about where their food comes from and not bothering anyone?

or

Groups like HSUS that defraud innocent people of their money and then use it to push forward their special interests and never help the animals they claim to represent.

I will take my chance with the hunters.

The real question should be why can't you animal extremists keep from forcing you opinions on other people?

If you don't like hunting… then don't do it that is your choice, but I do.

Fortunately more and more states are adding Hunting Rights to their state bill of rights along with the federal governments hunting heritage initiatives that will keep the antis crying like babies but leave them unable to force people to bend to their twisted way of thinking.

I really don't understand why you can't see that people DO NOT LIKE you slaughtering animals for fun?? This slaughter for entertainment is EXTREMIST behavior and we're simply sick and tired of it.

Why can't you just treat animals humanely????
