Wayne Pacelle lies about "mad cow" to Congressional committee
Last week, in testimony before the House Agriculture Committee concerning animal welfare in agriculture, HSUS president Wayne Pacelle claimed that a cow infected with BSE, or "mad cow disease" entered the country's food supply ( or go here for Pacelle's complete testimony), of course offering no evidence to support this claim. This claim, is in fact, an utter falsehood; a bald-faced lie. This particular animal did NOT enter the U.S. food supply and Pacelle was quickly called out by Congressman Bob Goodlatte ( R-VA ) who rightly stated that Pacelle's claim was simply "false". Naughty, naughty, Wayne!
