The "H" in HSUS? It stands for hypocrisy.

This tyke is too dangerous to live, says "expert" John Goodwin of the HSUS, who explains that "re-training" this puppy to prepare it for adoption would be "very difficult and expensive." I'm serious — he actually said that. John Goodwin makes Michael Vick look like a piker, if you ask me. This pup is one of 127 dogs [including some 60 puppies] slated to be killed following a dogfight bust in North Carolina.

It may be too late, but call and fax anyway. Tell these officials that it's dead wrong to kill dogs without evaluating them, without allowing anyone to speak on their behalf. Tell them to listen to real expertsthe ones that have offered to help these dogs.

Please call and fax.

What just fries me about all this is that if you want to talk about dogs with psychological issues, abused dogs with enough crazy to make them "very difficult" to rehab — fearful, unsocialized dogs that need patient, compassionate, experienced caretakers — consider the dogs rescued from puppy-millers. Dogs like these.

You ever hear the HSUS call for the mass killing of mill-rescues? Hellz no. But that pit bull puppy in the photo up above? The HSUS wants some poor ACO to kill that pup and dozens like him. Sixty pups...!

And you know what else makes me so mad I could puke? The HSUS uses pit bulls to raise money. "Help us care for the Vick dogs! No, wait — the Vick dogs should all be killed! But send us money anyway! Look, here's a picture of a sad pit bull."

The HSUS makes my skin crawl. They're lobbyists, all right: lobbyists for the mass slaughter of good dogs.

That is an excellent point about the mill rescues, and one I'd not considered before. I've met some mill rescue dogs, and you want to talk about time and effort and "very difficult" to rehab? I could never do it, that's for sure, and my hat is off and my heart goes out to everybody who can, because I think they must be angels.

Of course, those mill dogs aren't Man-Eating Monsters. Details, details.

Hypocrisy indeed. Needless, shameful, ridiculous hypocrisy. Those poor blameless baby puppies.

I don't get it. I have to admit that I didn’t realize that dogs who have been involved in fighting could still be re-homed. However, the great efforts put forth by several organizations including BadRap proved that these dogs can be rehabilitated and can be adopted out. I thought that this was great news for the breed and would eradicate the concept that any dog involved in fighting had to be put down. I guess HSUS wasn't following that story.

The only things too dangerous to live are the people in charge of HSUS, PETA and all the other "animal rights" groups.
