HSUS President Talks Ag-Gag With Ellen DeGeneres

Wayne Pacelle of HSUS urged viewers to fight back against animal cruelty by opposing laws that criminalize factory farm investigations.

Starring as a guest on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Wayne Pacelle, president of The Humane Society of the United States, educated viewers on the importance of undercover factory-farm investigations and the ag-gag bills that threaten to make them illegal. Pacelle notes, “Every animal deserves humane treatment … And criminalizing people who are trying to help animals and stop cruelty is so deeply wrong.” According to DeGeneres, when 25,000 people have shared the video of Pacelle talking on her show, $25,000 will be donated to the HSUS.
