The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) knows how to pull out all the stops when it comes to flexing their legislative muscles. The nation’s leading animal rights group announced that the powerful Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee will be the group’s keynote speaker at its “Taking Action for Animals” conference at the end of July.
Representative John Conyers (D- MI) is slated to speak at the conference being held July 24-27 in Arlington, Virginia. Joining Rep. Conyers will be Representative Jim Moran (D- VI) who is one of the co-chairs of the recently formed Congressional Animal Protection Caucus.
“It is very disappointing that Representatives Conyers and Moran have decided to lend their reputations to building the credibility of the nation’s number one anti-hunting organization,” stated U.S. Sportsmen’s Alliance president and CEO Bud Pidgeon. “This action shows that both representatives care more for media applause than scientifically valid wildlife management and sound public policy.”
