Nebraska Pork President Concerned At Activist Movement

People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals have applied for a booth at the Nebraska State Fair which is about a month away. Nebraska Pork Producers President Shane Meyer says while PETA has a right to apply for and be approved a booth, the move by the extremist group doesn’t make a lot of sense.

Meyer says what bothers him more is that the head of the Humane Society of the United States will be in Nebraska this week trying to enlist more support for his cause.

He says HSUS is more about politics, money and ending animal agriculture than it is about anything else.
