Humane Society commercial

Anyone else hear the Humane Society commercial on the radio?

They have a radio commercial out to recruit new members and receive more donations. It starts out by stating what an attrocity it was for Michael Vick to be involved with dog fighting. It goes on with statements about how the Humane Society stands against dog fighting and everyone should support them in their fight for animal rights. Obviously, the announcer said nothing of their pursuit to eliimate hunting.

I called the radio station and wrote them a letter letting them know that I would no longer listen to their radio station due to the hidden agenda of the Humane Society.

While I don't support the humane society because of their stance on hunting I do appreciate some of their efforts on dogs.

It truely was an atrocity what Michael Vick was involved in. Personally I think Michael Vick should suffer severly for his crimes. What he was involved in is cruel and inhumane to man's best friend. I think as sportsman and as many of us dog owners, we should all have more respect for not only dogs, but animals in general. I hunt and I fish. That means I engage in taking the life of an animal. But, I try to do it with the most respect to the creature that I can give. No true sportsman could ever profit financially from or condone extream cruelty to animals. Dog fighting for sport and profit is an abomination. I'm not out there to engage in unnessesary and sadistice cruelty to animals when I hunt or fish. Our goal should be a clean and humane kill. That is also why I am dead against catch-and-release fishing and extream long range rifle hunting. Remember the rules of hunting ethics? Enough said.

Nice post WesternHunter.

It should be noted that when I called the radio station, they asked if I condoned dog fights. Naturally, I let them know that I find it appalling. The person I spoke with didn't know the Humane Society is an anti-hunting organization.
