While attending the Nebraska State Fair this week I noticed this sign in the birthing pavilion. It was the tag line that really caught my attention "Surprisingly Human" at the bottom. Additionally, I thought there was a direct connection between the Animal Planet TV Channel and HSUS.
Animal Planet has become a talking puppet for extremist animal rights executives at HSUS.
According to the Animal Planet broadcast, a puppy mill is three things: (a) it's large, (b) it's filthy, and (c) its conditions are "sub-standard."

Inside the Exotic Pet Trade
According to the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), the exotic pet trade is a multi-billion dollar industry, second only to drugs and weapons on the black market. It's a $15 billion dollar business in the United States alone, with breeders and dealers selling animals over the Internet or in trade magazines. Millions of animals are forced into the exotic pet trade every year for the purpose of becoming someone's pet or entertaining the masses in a circus or roadside zoo.
NYS canned hunting exposed on Animal Planet Investigates
Monday night on Animal Planet Investigates, four undercover members of the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) captured footage behind the scenes inside 3 canned hunting (sometimes called captive hunting) facilities, two in New York State and one in Texas.
Continuing the powerful new series of investigative specials, which began with a look at dogfighting and the role of The Humane Society of the United States in combating it, Animal Planet aired Animal Planet Investigates: Petland on Monday, May 17.
Animal Planet Investigates took the top reality series for an episode on "canned hunting" about shooting animals trapped behind fences as "sport."
Confessions Animal Hoarding
Recently, the Humane Society of the United States' Animal Rescue Team rescued 150 dogs from a property in Lucerne Valley, Calif. The owner volunteered to surrender the dogs to the HSUS and the rescue was featured in an episode of Animal Planet's "Confessions: Animal Hoarding."
And there is much more.m Clearly the relationship between the two organizations is one of working together.
So my questions are:
Why with all the State Fairs that present birthing pavilions, how did Animal Planet choose the Nebraska State Fair?
Has the recent stern statements by our Governor Heineman about HSUS not being welcome in the state of Nebraska some how encouraged this as an undercover operation?
And finally who at the Nebraska State Fair approved Animal Planet to be on the fairgrounds and have free rein with the video cameras?
