...does anyone think HSUS will come in and offer a reward on this case? If someone intentionally killed a dog or a horse in this manner, they would have already done so. I guess I won’t hold my breath, but it shows the hypocrisy of this group [Troy Hadrick, "Suspected Act of Vandalism Kills 3800 Northwest Iowa Pigs," Advocates for Agriculture, 2009.11.17].
This just in (Thursday) from the Humane Society:
The Humane Society of the United States is offering a reward of up to $2,500 for information leading to the identification, arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for intentionally suffocating 3,800 pigs in Hull, Iowa.
Surely Hadrick and his readers celebrate this development, right?
Well, there's no apology, correction, or acknowledgment from Hadrick yet. But his commenters show the Farm Bureau's true spirit. Says commenter Dawn Heublein Rohrer from Kansas:
Oh, the hypocrites are at work! They will find a way to spin this to fit their agenda, just like always.
Hadrick publishes this comment, but leaves my query about hypocrisy unpublished in the moderation queue.
You just can't win with some people.
