HSUS betrays animals. Again.

This is a vigil for the billions of individuals whose lives are shattered for the palate pleasure and amusement of consumers whose taste for animal suffering trumps justice and compassion. It is a protest, a rejection of, and a necessary remedy for, the mockery that animal welfare advocates, “conscientious” consumers, and “humane” farmers have made of the word ‘respect’. It is a direct response to “RESPECT YOUR DINNER”, an HSUS sponsored event where participants are invited to experience the superior taste and texture of “humanely” enslaved, and “respectfully” murdered animals.

As participants will be “Hoofin it” around Denver for four consecutive days, savoring the burned remains of a different animal each day—a bison, a pig, a lamb, a calf—we will stand in solidarity, in sympathy, in outrage, and in deep sorrow with the animals whose lives, hearts, minds, memories, languages, and unique identities will have been obliterated into the ugliness of meat.

Join us in opposing the elitist notion that other animals exist for human use. Join us in celebrating the mind, the heart, the mystery that each sentient being brings to the world. Joins us in restoring the true meaning, practice, and moral significance of word ‘Respect’.

Live vegan and educate others about the vegan imperative.

A Follow Up To Our Four Night Vigil

It is with heavy hearts and exhausted souls that we had to shine the light of truth on the HSUS sponsored “Hoofin It” event which, as egregious as it was, was only one of countless events and partnerships that HSUS has had with animal killers for years.

HSUS’ crimes against the animals have been hidden in plain sight for anyone to see.

Although our original 4 night Vigil series was intended to present the “hoofed animal menu” victim’s perspective during each night’s horrific event, the entire Vigil was also meant to expose a much larger, more pervasive trend that not only the HSUS has been engaging in, but most major animal “rights” organizations, as well as major sanctuaries.

Their insistence on using the language of “factory farming” rather than “Animal Farming”, and their focus on “humane” reforms — which imply that animals can be enslaved, raped, kidnapped and murdered “humanely” — is what opened the flood gates for events like the HSUS sponsored “Hoofin It” atrocity, and many others.

This was not the first of its kind and will not be the last of its kind — sponsored by, sanctioned by, and created by the animals’ advocates’ refusal to include all animals in their advocacy.

What we’ve seen is a swapping out of one group of victims for another, and organizations calling it “progress”.

What we’ve seen is that huge multinational corporations (Tyson, Goodtimes Burgers, Chipotle…) are now using the language that animal protection organizations have given them, to promote the sale and consumption of “non factory farmed” animals.

What we know is that, when confronted with the horrors of factory farming, the public’s default response is now to look for products of animal misery that are labeled “humane”– thereby increasing the demand for animal suffering and death — instead of understanding that the only way to end this massive injustice is to become vegan.

At Peaceful Prairie Sanctuary, we know the victims of all animal farming, and we know that our job as their advocates is to tell the public — and Vegans — the whole truth about the cruelty and injustice inherent in all animal farming/ use.

We call on all vegans to please realize that the consequences of opposing “factory farming” instead of “all animal farming” are devastating for the animals.

Promoting the feel-good lie that “humane” farming is, or can ever be, anything but an atrocity results only in increasing the demand for its blood products and, with it, in perpetuating the horror that the victims are forced to endure under the label “high welfare”.

Please tell the whole truth in your own advocacy, and call on all animal protection organizations and sanctuaries to do the same.

Live vegan and educate others about the vegan imperative.

    Would… no, COULD someone please explain to me how anyone can “humanely” cage or “respectfully” murder any animal? That is a concept the defies reason and reality and is perpetrated by liars and idiots. Jesus H. Christ, how brutal and how clueless can mankind be? It’s enough to make one cry…

      Well-said, David, I agree. So many animal “rights” organizations have dropped the vegan message and are instead jumping on the welfarist propaganda bandwagon; they are essentially telling people that it is okay to eat “humanely-raised” meat and dairy. The only humane, though, is vegan. Any animal exploited, regardless of definition, can never be considered “humane”. Thanks, David.

    Most NGOs betray animals. I have a fight with them all.

      It’s very sad and so disappointing. If not for these organizations, there would be far more vegans and those who believe in true animal rights. Thanks, Ann.

    There is no such thing as the “humane” farming of nonhuman animals. Such suffering, just for a moment on the lips 😥

      Exactly. These organizations want us to believe it, though, and so many do. 😦 Thanks, Emy.

    I’m not surprised. HSUS for me means pacelle-vick, that is animal abuse 😦 These orgs are dangerous, animals have already too many enemies and deserve loyal defenders. Thanks Stacey

      You are so right – they are very dangerous. They’re duplicitous and cruel, and the really sad thing is so many follow them and believe them. Remember the cult-like following after the Vick nightmare? Very dangerous!
