The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) may have attempted to claim some credibility by launching a state “agriculture council” in Oklahoma, but the results leave much to be desired.

According to Humane Watch, just two ranchers are on the council, which consists of only four members. Other members include a lawyer and a businessman.  Click here to learn more from Humane Watch.

Despite the grou's efforts, the council may not be enough to sway the state’s leery residents. Earlier this spring, Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt issued a consumer warning against HSUS, warning Oklahomans of the group’s solicitations and advertisements made in the wake of the May 2013 tornado outbreak. Read more here.

In July, Pruitt was back on the warpath and issued the HSUS subpoenas.  See, “Okla. Attorney General keeps pressure on HSUS.”
