    GRNC Alert 06-26-10: Anti-Hunting Bill, S. 460 Headed for Finance Committee Vote

    GRNC Alert 06-26-10:
    Anti-Hunting Bill, S. 460 Headed for Finance Committee Vote

    "We are going to use the ballot box and the democratic process to stop all hunting in the United States.... We will take it species by species until all hunting is stopped...."
    - Wayne Pacelle, president, Humane Society of the United States

    Hearing expected Wednesday, June 30 at 8:30 am.

    And their first step is attacking dog breeders. S 460, now in the NC House Finance Committee, is designed to shut down commercial dog breeders. But as you can see from Mr. Pacelle's quote, this is just the opening salvo - employing a classic divide and conquer tactic - in a war to end all hunting in North Carolina.

    If S 460 truly promoted the welfare of animals, then one must question why it is being opposed by every other organization interested in the good of animals, such as: The American Kennel Club, the United Kennel Club, the American Veterinarian Medical Association, the North Carolina Agribusiness Council, the North Carolina Federation of Dog Clubs, and the North Carolina Sporting Dogs Association.

    If S 460 actually were for the good of the dogs, wouldn't the Humane Society of the US (HSUS) have at least ONE ally in their quest? Consider this strange quote attributed to Mr. Pacelle when asked if he envisions a future with not pets: , "I wouldn't say that I envision that, no. If I had my personal view perhaps that might take hold. In fact, I don't want to see another cat or dog born."

    See Actions section following the correction on an error in our last alert for further instructions.

    OOPS - Correction

    In out previous alert about HR 5175, the Disclose Act, we stated that all NC Democrats voted for it. We are informed that Rep. Mike McIntyre (D-7) did NOT vote for this atrocity against your freedom of speech.


    Contact the members of the NC House Finance Committee listed below and deliver the following message:

    Dear Representative:

    I urge you to oppose S 460 which is currently in your committee - the House Finance Committee. This is simply a measure to reduce hunting rights and is not truly in the best interests of the dogs it purports to protect. In fact it is opposed by every group interested in the welfare of animals except for the Humane Society of the U.S. which has a solidly anti-hunting agenda.

    Please use every means at your disposal to stop this bad bill from moving forward.

    I just read the full bill. Not sure I see in there how it is in any way anti-hunting. Please show me a line you are concerned with.

    It looks like it is simply regulating large commercial breeding operations and making rules regarding euthanasia. Am I wrong about this?
