Is hunting really threatened by animal-rights activists?

Buck,

I like to see a person who knows their buisness and you seem to be on the side of good. I am from Oklahoma and I am a hunter, the only difference in you and me is that I am a female. I am not offended by the cockfighting industry here in Oklahoma because I know first hand of the revenue that it generates for our economy. My only fear is that sportsmen...all sportsmen will not see the threat that the animal rights people bring to Oklahoma. Today the game fowl industry is the target but I feel that other sportsmen are on the hit list and don't know it.

Check this out:Wayne Pacelle, Senior Vice-President, formerly of Friends for Animals

"We have no ethical obligation to preserve the different breeds of livestock produced through selective breeding. ... One generation and out. We have no problem with the extinction of domestic animals. They are creations of human selective breeding." (Quoted in Animal People, May, 1993)

"If we could shut down all sport hunting in a moment, we would." (Quoted in "Impassioned Agitator," Associated Press, Dec. 30, 1991)

"Our goal is to get sport hunting in the same category as cock fighting and dog fighting. Our opponents say that hunting is a tradition. We say traditions can change." (Quoted in Bozeman Daily Chronicle, Oct. 8, 1991)

"Only 7% of Americans are hunters. That means there are more of us than there are of them. It is simply a matter of democracy. The majority rules in a democracy. We are going to use the ballot box and the democratic process to stop all hunting in the United States... We will take it species by species until all hunting is stopped in California. Then we will take it state by state." (Full Cry, October 1990)

Fund for Animals,Friends of Animals and Humane USA are all the same thing they are different branches of the HSUS.

Most intriguing Buck! Indeed, even though I had a hard time understanding you at first, things are coming together.

So your saying that Allard supports Humane USA, or at least takes money from them to vote in their corner?

Now what is the connection to the Fund for Animals? On the "About Us" page for the Humane USA (by the way I had never heard of this group until just now), its says that it is composed of leaders from the other animal rights groups (of which the most sinister is the Fund for Animals). Is their any other connection other than leadership?

Welcome to the board! Same to you Powderburn!

I'm confused on these Allard allegations. I don't see how the NRA (Heston made a trip to Denver to stump for Allard) can support a guy that would take money from animal rights groups thats public goal is to ban hunting?

Does that not stike anybody here as odd?

Bit,
I am confused by it myself but I know that he is on the side to the Ar people or at least his wallet is. I have found that many people who endorse these political figures don't find out until it is to late that they are not who they thought they were. Powder

Powderburn,

I don't think you understand, the campaign between Strickland and Allard has been bloody negative, and the most blood spilled for Allard has been on his environmental record, which I admit is not so sterling.

Robert Redford came to town to explain why Allard is hell for the Earth Mother Gaia.

I have a piece of paper on my kitchen table, sent to me courtesy of the Democratic party, explaining exactly why Allard should be stopped or we all are going to be drinking sludge and breathing toxic fumes. I'm not making this up. Every environmental group that is anybody does not support Allard. Allard even openly supports drilling in ANWR (alaska national wildlife refuge) and repealing the ban on machine gun class weapons. If their is a poster-boy for the Green Movement it is not Wayne Allard.

Yet is there any more "green agenda" than that proposed by the Fund for Animals? Allard is a veterinarian by trade, perhaps that has something to do with it.

Wayne Allard may be against polutry-fighting (Good word Expatriate!), but I really, really don't think he supports a ban on hunting.

Note that I'm not a card carrying Republican, or even really trying to defend Mr. Allard. It just that what you are saying flies precisely in the face of 3 months of attack ads.

Bit,

All I know is that he was endorsed by the Humane USA.

I'm sorry but I feel like Buck on this. If you accept money from Ar people then you are buying into their propaganda. If you allow them to endorse you then you are on their side.

"only 7% of Americans are hunters. That means there are more of us than there are of them. It's simply a matter of democracy. The majority rules in a democracy. We are going to use the ballot box and the democratic process to stop all hunting in the United States...We will take it species by species until all hunting is stopped in California. Then we will take it state by state." statement made by Wayne Pacelle at the Tulsa Convention Center.

I just don't like anyone who will try and take away one of my rights. If I want to hunt, fish, rodeo or anything else that has to do with my animals I think that is my right as an American and these people need to be stopped.
