Best Friends responds to Wilkes County dog euths

On the one hand, I'm glad BFAS has put out a press release questioning HSUS's stance on euthanizing all the dogs from the Wilkes County seizures, but on the other, I worry that they may be drawn into a dirty PR campaign against groups like HSUS and PETA from which no one emerges unscathed.

Here's an excerpt:

Ledy VanKavage, an attorney with Best Friends Animal Society, said, “We are disheartened and shocked that HSUS, a leader in the animal welfare community, would testify in court for the automatic destruction of puppies and dogs who had not been given the opportunity to be evaluated as individuals, based on [HSUS’s] policy. The Michael Vick dogs have proven how antiquated this approach is.”

Here's the full press release: Humane(?) Society
