Confused yet? That's because there's no substance, no fact, behind any of these HSUS assertions. Caravans of dogfighters on the NYS Thruway You didn't hear about that one? No? Kwan insists that hoards of Jersey dogfighters are swarming to New York -- which of course they aren't, but what the hell. . . Geez. With all that toll revenue coming from New Jersey wallets, New York better leave their dogfight laws "as is." Where's the fire, baby Dogfight Czar? The truth is that New York averaged only four dogfight convictions annually over the last ten years. The ASPCA confirms that dogfighting is not prevalent in New York City. God knows what Kwan, who moonlights as Super Vegan the restaurant critic, has been smoking. And HSUS won't be satisfied until all pit bulls everywhere are dead. HSUS knocking on state Capitol doors When HSUS speaks to legislators, it lies. It distorts. It makes shit up. HSUS claims a membership of 10 million people . Kwan claims 800,000 New York members, or one out of 24 residents. That's enough to get any legislator's attention. . .unless someone mentions to their public servants that HSUS's 2007 tax returns indicate 420,000 members. Globally. Pressure on legislators from animal rights extremists has never been more intense, and it's going to get much worse. Does HSUS speak for you? HSUS will be in the New York state capital, Albany, on March 30. HSUS will be in your state capital soon, too. If they haven't been there already. So, are you okay with puppy slaughter, manufactured "statistics" and the wild imaginings of baby Dogfight Czars? Looking forward to a bunch of new laws based on lies and fear-mongering? Me? I'm damned if I'll allow my elected representatives to assume that the Humane Society of the United States speaks for me.
