The President and CEO of the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), Wayne Pacelle, dropped his bid for a seat on Tyson’s board.
In October, Pacelle, with the help of Wall Street investor Carl Icahn, announced his candidacy for the seat. Simply put, Pacelle’s effort to gain a seat on Tyson’s board was a ploy to draw media attention for HSUS.
“The nomination had zero effect on the company.”
Tyson continues to defend the freedoms of American farmers and consumers despite strong efforts from radical animal rights groups, like HSUS.
Pacelle’s attempt to grab a seat on Tyson’s board shows his desperation, because Tyson’s efforts remain a roadblock to the advancement of their extreme agenda.
HSUS uses their million-dollar budget to buy up stock in food companies with the intent to change company policies. HSUS’ purchase of Tyson shares gave Pacelle an opportunity to seek a seat on the board.
For HSUS, desperate times call for desperate measures.
Pacelle told Bloomberg News, the animal-protection charity will use public-awareness efforts, litigation, investigations and corporate campaigns to pressure Tyson.
Tyson’s commitment to American farmers remains strong amidst Pacelle and HSUS’ constant pressures.
Pacelle doesn’t get the picture; farmers and consumers hold freedoms to choose, not simply comply with his radical animal rights agenda.
