On Friday, the ARLGP welcomed Wayne Pacelle, CEO of the Humane Society of the United States. Mr. Pacelle visited the shelter to speak with staff, volunteers and community members about the upcoming bear baiting initiative on the November ballot.
The ARLGP has endorsed the Yes on 1 campaign and supports the efforts of the HSUS to end inhumane bear baiting, hounding and trapping in our state. Governor Baxter, the founder of the ARLGP, believed wildlife should not be destroyed for recreation or entertainment. We support our founder’s mission and encourage others to learn more about the Yes on 1 campaign to end unnecessary suffering of our bears and hounds.
We thank Mr. Pacelle and the HSUS team for visiting and supporting the ARLGP!
