It certainly seems at times that Wayne Pacelle, the head of the Humane Society of the United States, speaks with a forked tongue. Meaning he deliberately says one thing, but means another. Those in the agricultural community have been aware of this interesting “affliction” of Pacelle’s for quite some time. The HSUS has found itself on the hot seat and in the news a lot recently over the fact that very little of what it collects in donations actually ever goes to help animal shelters. Instead, the majority of those dollars are being spent to create tougher production standards for animal agriculture. Pacelle continues to deny that the HSUS has a vegan or anti-meat agenda, and that he personally does not want to see the total obliteration of animal agriculture. But then how does he explain his most recent blog where he chastises the United Nations Conference for Sustainable Development for not including any anti-meat discussions on the agenda, stating that “If you’d like to help animals and the environment, it’s as easy as starting with your next meal.” If that’s not an anti-meat, anti-animal agriculture statement, I’ll eat my hat.
