Dave Heineman to Humane Society: We’ll fight and beat you

The message to the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) from Nebraska Gov. Dave Heineman is loud and clear: HSUS is in for a fight if it goes after the state’s livestock industry. In an interview after a recent speech to the Nebraska Cattlemen’s Association, Heineman said HSUS “is anti-agriculture and they’re out to destroy animal agriculture, and if they want to come to Nebraska, we’re going to fight them and we’re going to beat them.

“Agriculture is the number one industry in this state. It’s what makes our economy strong,” he said. “I’m going to stand tall and this is a fight we won’t shy away from.” Heineman also made it clear that a compromise is not an option.

“In Nebraska, no deal, no compromise. We’re going to stand up, we’re going to beat them. They’d be better off going somewhere else, because they’re going to lose if they stay in Nebraska.”

HSUS has become more active in the state, holding a town hall meeting last month in Lincoln, and hiring a state coordinator, according to the Brownfield News Network.
