It is my understanding that the HSUS is a front for PETA. Under the guise of
"the animal protection movement" they lobby for all kinds of things that sound
good on their face, like a broad and expansive definition of what is "abusive"
to lab animals, then turn it on Joe Blow PetOwner to fit the PETE agenda.

This is what they want them (and you) to think.

I mean, how hard can it be to pull the wool over a politician's eyes???

That's a bit of a reach :-)  Yes, the HSUS tends to be in the
forefront of "animal rights" and they've come out with a whole
lot of positions I (and you) disagree with, particularly under
the current director.  But there is not the affiliation with
PETA you imply, at all.

It's also worth noting that each local Humane Society is an
independent organization, with missions and positions that
are completely unrelated to HSUS.
