Earlier this year, we posted a report that the Humane Society would benefit from the proceeds of customized stamps available through Zazzle.com. Now, a group called Sportsmen for Fish and Wildlife says they’re opposed to the animal rights group getting any kind of dividend from a public resource and have asked their 15,000 members to express their displeasure to their representatives in Congress. As a result, the debate is getting more heated. “Frankly, I find it appalling that this small band of extremist hunters would want to deny support for our disaster-relief services,” fired HS president Wayne Pacelle. “We help people and their pets when hurricanes or forest fires or any other natural disaster strikes and almost every American, including hunters I presume, would support that.” To which, the SFW fired back: “If they’d stick to their mission of taking care of dogs and cats they wouldn’t have the opposition.”
