HSUS In Congress

HSUS President testifies before a US House subcommittee about animal abuse committed on factory farms.

Last Thursday, Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) President Wayne Pacelle testified before Congress regarding the Humane Methods of Slaughter Act. The hearing continued an animal-welfare dialogue that HSUS initiated with the US House in 2008 after an HSUS undercover investigation at a California factory farm revealed negligence and abuse of animals. During Thursday's follow-up hearing, Pacelle testified about several new HSUS undercover investigations that further demonstrate animal abuse committed in some of the nation's largest factory farms, including an exposé filmed at a Vermont farm that gained national attention. Pacelle proposed specific welfare policy changes and reforms to lessen such instances of animal suffering.
