Humane Society Of The United States False Advertising

Recent research has determined HSUS’s own donors are confused about where their money goes. An April 2015 poll of 1,051 self-identified HSUS supporters found that 87 percent of HSUS’s donors were unaware that HSUS gives just one percent of its budget to local pet shelters. When informed of this fact, 92 percent of HSUS’s own donors agreed the group “misleads people into thinking that it supports local humane societies and pet shelters,” and 55 percent were less likely to support HSUS.

Maine’s chance to reconsider bear hounding, trapping without referendum – Or I’ll Get My Way One Way or Another

*Editor’s Note* – The Bangor Daily News, a mouthpiece of the Left and a hater of anything Maine tradition, is at it once again trying to convince Maine people that hunting bears with hounds and trapping are methods that simply don’t fit into what they deem and demand should be everyone’s lifestyle. This time they are suggesting that when Maine is devising their new bear management plan, that the Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife (MDIFW) should manipulate that plan to get the Legislature the necessary bias to enact laws that would ban the bear hunting methods.

If this isn’t the classic, “I told you so,” I don’t know what is. Hunters and others supportive of bear hunting have, for years, stated that anti human groups, such as the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), will never stop their campaign until they have succeeded in eliminating all forms of hunting, fishing and trapping. The Bangor News is a wonderful “useful idiot” for groups like the HSUS.

In examining the editorial staff’s perspective on this issue, we see that they think the company hired to conduct surveys of public opinions “might” this time show that a majority of people will support a ban on bear hounding and trapping. Even though two referendums in 10 years proved otherwise, BDN, in their insanity, think this time that “third time’s a charm.”

And they may be right – not because a majority of people think that way but because it appears, from what I have read about this effort, everyone is placing all their bets on that company who will be conducting the survey. What fools who do.

All surveys are bias. Let me repeat that. All surveys(polls) are biased. The company that will be conducting the survey for Maine will say they are not and that all questions and approaches are scientific, blah, blah, blah. The reality is a question can be asked in several ways in order to achieve a desired outcome. Sorry, but that is the truth.

So, just as easily, the survey questions can be presented in any way they want and the results will be neither accurate nor unbiased. In short, Maine is to become at the mercy of a company out of Virginia that everyone thinks may be the answer to all things bear in Maine.

Regardless of the outcome, regardless of what MDIFW does, regardless of what the Maine Legislature does, regardless of what any sane person or group of persons does, the Bangor Daily News and all other anti human groups will NOT stop their attacks until they get what they want.

With bears specifically, this round of management planning is the agency’s opportunity to reach a consensus, which could be key to preventing another referendum battle over bear hunting methods that have gone before voters twice in the past 11 years.

Fascism Thriving in U.S.

*Editor’s Note* – Although it shouldn’t, it still amazes me that stupid people will use any opportunity to trump up support for causes that destroy themselves and die loving it.

Still trying gain a grip on some guy killing a lion in Africa, the Humane Society of the United States attempts to liken the death of a lion in Africa to the destruction of private property rights.

Totalitarians, duped by the fascists in American government, doing the dirty work for the scum in power, continue their onslaught on American’s private property rights, all because some perverted person or group of persons gave an animal a name.

The killing of a beloved lion by an American hunter in Africa sparked global outrage this summer, and it’s also bringing to light the issue of captive, or canned, hunting in Indiana and other states.In these hunts, shooters pay to kill animals trapped behind fences. In other countries, exotic animals are the prey, but in Indiana, deer are hunted.

HSUS Petition Fails to Fracture Alliances

Press Release from the U.S. Sportsman’s Alliance:

On June 30, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service rejected a petition by the Humane Society of the United States concerning the listing of gray wolves under the Endangered Species Act. The petition requested that the status of gray wolves across the contiguous United States be changed from “endangered” to “threatened,” excepting Mexican wolves in the Southwest, which would remain as endangered status. HSUS couched this request under the guise of attempting to appear moderate and in search of compromise. Neither is true and the Sportsmen’s Alliance applauds USFWS for seeing it as an unwarranted smokescreen.

“This petition was nothing less than the radical HSUS trying to push its agenda on yet another wildlife management issue that they are in no way qualified to deal with,” said Nick Pinizzotto, Sportsmen’s Alliance president and CEO. “There is no room for misguided emotion when it comes to managing wildlife, and USFW clearly agrees.”

By proposing to list wolves as threatened, HSUS hoped to split the powerful alliance of sportsmen, agriculture and wildlife professionals. Under a “threatened” listing, more leeway exists to manage wolves preying on livestock. However, this “compromise” is not based on facts or science, and would, as a practical matter, would prevent proper wolf management that includes hunting.

With wolf populations rapidly expanding, and no other scientific reason to keep gray wolves listed under the protections of the Endangered Species Act, USFWS correctly rejected the petition.

“This petition is just another example of the tactics these groups will use to manipulate the Endangered Species Act,” said Evan Heusinkveld, vice president of government affairs for Sportsmen’s Alliance. “FWS has once again correctly found that there is no evidence that wolves outside the Southwest are either threatened or endangered.”

Not only has USFWS rejected the petition, in their evaluation of the evidence, they found that hunting is not a threat to wolves because state management plans put limits on hunting if population levels drop – just as with every other species of wildlife throughout the nation that enjoys scientific management.

In February, the Sportsmen’s Alliance and our partners appealed a misguided and shortsighted federal ruling made on Dec. 20 that put wolves back under federal protection.

“The court’s decision to reinstate federal protections until wolves recover across the entire country is not only misguided, it ignores years of policy to the contrary,” said Heusinkveld. “It’s clear to everyone involved that wolves have not only recovered, but are growing. But the real story here is that HSUS and their allies can’t stand the thought of a wolf hunting season. Instead, they are bound and determined to waste hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars in legal costs to prevent proper management of wolves.”

U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Announces Finding on Gray Wolf Petition

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has determined that a petition to reclassify all gray wolves in the conterminous United States, except for the Mexican wolf in the Southwest, as a threatened species under the Endangered Species Act (ESA) does not present substantial information indicating that reclassification may be warranted. As a result, the Service will take no further action on the petition, which was submitted by The Humane Society of the United States and 22 other petitioners in January.

The Service’s review concluded that the petition did not provide information to indicate that the population petitioned for listing, which does not correspond to any currently listed gray wolf population, may qualify as a listable entity under the ESA.

The Service also found that the petition failed to provide substantial information indicating these wolves may meet the definition of a threatened species, specifically are likely to be in danger of extinction within the foreseeable future throughout all or a significant portion of their range.

This finding will appear in a 90-day batched notice with 30 other petition findings,

http://www.regulations.gov/#!docketDetail;D=FWS-HQ-ES-2015-0072

The notice will publish in the Federal Register on July 1, 2015, and also will be available at www.fws.gov/policy/frsystem/default.cfm by clicking on the 2015 Notices link under Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants. Information can be submitted on species for which a status review is being initiated, using the specified docket number, beginning upon publication in the Federal Register, for 60 days until August 31, 2015.

Maine Bear Hunting Still Under Attack in Maine

“An Act To Ensure Safe and Humane Bear Hunting Practices” would create a Class D crime for hunting bear with the use of dogs.

The people of Maine have spoken not once, but twice on this very issue as recently as last November, yet some organizations such as the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) have shown their unwillingness to respect the very backbone of rural Maine heritage and economy, our guides and sportsmen.

Then Just Give Up, Loser!

The master dichotomist, who wrongly divides untruths, seizes his own truth declaring all others wrong, is at it again. A few days ago, he told us that it was wrong to change the governing process to anything he was opposed to. Not that the Dichotomist is opposed to attempting to govern of and by the people but only if it fits a prescribed narrative that he embraces, evidently.

The other day, he attempted to convince readers of the Bangor Daily News that it is wrong to find ways of pushing back against the wrongful and perverted ways of the animal rights agenda by distorting the truth with a mission to mislead.

According to the Master Dichotomist, if Maine people teach their children to hunt, it will make them mass murderers. Very few sane people can make that connection.

In addition, he pretends to not understand that there is a difference between the Humane Society of the United States, and other perverted environmental and animal rights groups, marching into the State of Maine and setting up camp to change the way Maine people choose to live, and a grass roots organization in Maine seeking any help it can get from deeper-pocketed organizations to fight against the totalitarian socialists.

This is another example of why I choose to label these people as totalitarian socialists. Not only do they twist facts, they believe they control the process in which people can oppose the environmentalists’ slavery agenda. Any effort to oppose their agendas, meets with scoff and ridicule, attempting to place those in opposition, in actuality, the same realm as themselves – wrong to use the designed channels they have mastered to gain power and control.

The Master Dichotomist seems to intimate that the Sportsman’s Alliance of Maine and all of those who might support the effort to increase the base of hunters in Maine by offering residents a chance to become involved in the Families Afield Program, as a futile effort. Because, he thinks hunting is a dinosaur, outdoor sportsmen should just give up and join the perverts who worship animals over humans.

Of the thirteen states that have an apprentice hunting program, Families Afield, the one-million new hunters have yet to step up as mass murderers.

Outdoors in Maine: Amendment may not be ‘silver bullet,’ but it would be well worth it

Earlier this month, two legislative bills that would, in all likelihood, represent a preemptive strike against the HSUS anti-hunting initiatives in Maine were heard by the Joint Legislative Committee on Fisheries and Wildlife. Basically, the two bills, LD 703 and LD 753, would amend the state constitution so as to protect the people’s right to hunt and fish and manage wildlife.

From all reports, these bills are going to get an inordinate amount of legislative scrutiny.
