Rep. Young Refuses Humane Society Award



Washington, Mar 30 -


Rep. Young Refuses Humane Society Award


Alaskan Congressman Don Young refused an award this evening from The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and the Humane Society Legislative Fund that would have honored his work for animals in 2010. While capitalizing on the good work of local humane societies that shelter, spay, and neuter animals, the HSUS does not own, operate, or directly control a single animal shelter in our country, despite a budget of well over $100 million.

“HSUS are hypocrites, plain and simple, and I will not join them by accepting this award,” said Rep. Young. “Local animal shelters and humane societies do excellent work by caring for neglected and homeless animals, and through their spaying and neutering programs. This organization, however, has absolutely nothing to do with animal welfare. Instead they prey on the emotions of big-hearted Americans. They flash images of abused animals on our television screens to raise money that will eventually go to pay their salaries and pensions, not to helping better the lives of these animals. They run anti-hunting and anti-trapping campaigns and are of the same cloth as PETA and other extremist organizations. I can only guess that I was to receive this award due to my support of the Wildlife Without Borders program, which develops wildlife management and conservation efforts to maintain global species diversity. That program is true conservation; what this group wants is preservation. To accept this award would be supporting their manipulative ways and misguided agenda, and I want no part of that.”

If only our President had had that kind of brass when nominated for a nobel peace prize he didn't earn.

I have to wonder what they were thinking. Did they really think that Don Young, Congressman from Alaska, was going to accept an award from an anti-hunting, anti-trapping, anti-iditarod group?

I think they expected him to not have done his homework and think they are a legitimate organization.

Don's only problem is a reluctance to voice his opinions bluntly.
