Uh oh. Looks like that good ‘ole charity so many people love is actually not what they thought. Check it out…
Earlier in July, word got out that America’s non-profit media darling, the Humane Society of the United States, ran into a bit of bad luck.

Their fingerprints were all over the movie Blackfish and they’re currently leading the smear campaign against aquariums to raise money for their own selfish interests.
