HSUS Wants To Waste $170,000 In Tax Dollars

The Humane Society of the U.S. (HSUS) is pushing yet another deer contraceptive program in a national park that will cost U.S. taxpayers more than $170,000. The plan is being pushed by three U.S. representatives.

The misinformed trio recently sent a letter to U.S. Department of the Interior Secretary Ken Salazar requesting that the National Park Service (NPS) consider a contraception project to control deer populations in Rock Creek Park in Washington, D.C. Ironically, the HSUS touts this as a pilot project, offers to cover only half the expense, and then claims great successes in other deer and horse contraceptive programs. How can it be a pilot test program if they claim to have done it before; And just how “humane” is this type of program?

The contraception delivery requires one shot from a special firearm that could harm the animal and definitely punches a hole in the target animal’s skin. That open wound could be a source for infestation or result in the development of maggots living in the animal after flies lay eggs at the site. Not good.
