Last week, season four American Idol winner Carrie Underwood, released her Motley Crue remake of Home Sweet Home which will be played on American Idol each week as a contestant makes their exit. A portion of the proceeds from the downloaded tune will be donated by Carrie Underwood to the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS).
Hunting groups across the US, especially the US Sportsman’s Alliance (USSA)are enraged by her generosity stating that the Humane Society does not oversee animal shelters, insteadit is a radical organization that seeks to end hunting and other responsible uses of animals in America.
The US Sportsman’s Alliance (USSA),has asked that hunters write FOX Broadcasting requesting that American Idol not support the HSUS by using CarrieUnderwood’s song.
The Humane Society does not feel that they are an “anti-hunting group” andon their website they state that they “seek a humane and sustainable world for all animals-a world that will also benefit people.”
They do not hide the fact however,that theyare opposed tocertain types of hunting. They state that they “confront national and global cruelties through major campaigns targeting the barbaric cruelties of…inhumane and unsporting hunting practices.”
