Humane Society of the United States to challenge hunting via courts
U.S. Sportsmen's Alliance Dec. 3, 2004
The nation's largest anti-hunting group has launched a new legal department to challenge sportsmen in the courts.
An Animal Protection Litigation section was created in the wake of the recent merger of the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and the Fund for Animals. Attorney Jonathan Lovvorn was selected to head the department. The organization intends to add four litigating attorneys by the end of the year.
"The animal rights movement sees the courts as the easiest way to realize its anti-hunting agenda," said U.S. Sportsmen's Alliance Senior Vice President Rick Story. "Anti-hunters are in court right now to halt black bear hunting and kick sportsmen off of public lands. The move to implement an HSUS Animal Protection Litigation function so quickly and the commitment to the program's expansion prove that it is a priority for the newly formed mega-anti-hunting rights group."
Lovvorn has been a partner with Meyer & Glitzenstein, the Washington, D.C. law firm used by the Fund for Animals in legal battles against sportsmen. He will assume his duties as vice president on January 1, 2005.
The merger of the two anti-hunting groups was announced on November 22, 2004. It will formally occur on January 1, 2005. The new group will have as much as $98 million in annual support to derail hunting and traditional wildlife management in the United States.
After the merger, the new organization will continue to be known as the Humane Society of the United States. It has stated that the abolition of hunting and trapping will be priority issues. Bowhunting is the first form of hunting that the group has vowed to eradicate.
The U.S. Sportsmen's Alliance has begun working with bowhunting organizations, businesses and publications to organize bowhunters nationwide to prepare a defense.
Inhumane society and hunting ping.
To let them room free.
Did you know that panther and courage are being placed? I have confirmed info that 30 have been dropped in OK.
I've heard rumors of this in other states. I've only been able to confirm OK though.
Sing with me now...
BOOOORNNN FREEEE......as free as the wind blows
As free as the grass grows
Born free to follow your heart
(sorry was being a wiza gurl for the Sierra Club)
Cougars have been spotted near El Camino Real, the main drag of major cities on the San Francisco peninsula. The public passed Prop. 192 mandating cougar protection. State hunters are now killing more cougars than private hunters ever did. It's only a matter of time before a kid gets killed at school.
Anti-Second Amendment Shysters, EcoTerrorists, Politically Correct (translate anti-Christian) Retailers....
This country needs a revolution.
We need to take America back from the liberal scum that has risen to the top of the pond.
Can we still hunt left wing liberals?? An arrow is a terrible thing to waste.
Got any poisoned tipped arrows??
How many do you need?
How many members in the newly merged Humane Society??:)
If your as good as the elf "Legolas" from the 'Lord of the Rings' was, I'll buy them in bulk for you!
Sounds good to me. We have some rabid lefties who need hunting down.
I can put 5 in a dixie cup at 100 feet! That's with a 50 lb recurve. A compound bow is much easier to be accurate with.
Can you tell us any more about cougars being placed in Ok?
My mother saw one cross the road about 15 years ago - 45 miles East of Tulsa.
You win the "Quiver of the day" award! Cospiracy Guy is in charge of getting everyone "up to speed" in the accuracy division. Beauty of an arrow is that it doesn't tell the whole world what your up to, unlike that of the report of a shot being fired.
