After nearly a year and a half of court proceedings, a Humane Society of the United States lawsuit against the state of Maine has been dismissed.
NRA and other conservation organizations call for Interior Department to reject lead-ammo ban petition; Hornady urges hunters and shooters to take action.
Anti-hunters collect funds from a handful of deep-pocketed donors.
The name makes it sound like this organization cares about animals—particularly unwanted pets—but its actions are dangerous to hunters, and consumers everywhere.
The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) owes everything, from its occasional victories to its very existence, to lying. Consider the following: It has built up a huge war chest to push anti-hunting legislation and lawsuits by convincing donors it's affiliated with similarly named animal shelters (in reality HSUS donates just 1 percent of its budget to shelters). It led Michigan voters to confuse mourning doves with white doves. It has fought to ban the breeding of hunting dogs by lumping reputable kennels in with puppy mills.
