Why does the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) need body armor?
That’s the question being raised by HumaneWatch after spotting an HSUS employee wearing a bulletproof vest in a video for the group’s Pennsylvania director.
“Here’s why this is silly,” HumaneWatch writes. “HSUS does occasionally assist law enforcement in conducting raids on dogfighters. But there’s no way that any law enforcement agency would ever put volunteers in a situation where they might be in the line of fire. The police will make arrests, and HSUS will assist in collecting evidence/seizing dogs afterward.”
In other words, law enforcement would not allow HSUS in situation where there would be any danger. And if it were a dangerous situation, other personnel would also be wearing body armor.
