Ag vs. HSUS: The Rural Battlefield

The Humane Society has taken on confined animal farming in a way that has started a war in rural America, making it more difficult for family farmers to open markets and raise livestock ethically.

The war between the Humane Society of the U.S. (HSUS) and certain agriculture and hunting groups has grown so intense that the conflict now includes a comic book about Ellen DeGeneres.

There’s a company, you see, that is publishing a series of comics called “Female Force," telling the stories of famous women, such as Sarah Palin and Barbara Walters.
