They found one rancher that would sue the cattlemen's association board for some slight over 20+ years ago and are helping bankroll his lawsuit.
The same with the pork board, they found some disgruntled pig farmer that they are also helping pay for his lawsuit.
It is all harassment, making those sued use resources fighting the lawsuits, while the HSUS keeps picking wherever they can at our rights to use animals.
I sure hope this is one situation that, if they are involved, someone can stop them, not that it will do the rest of us any good, they have become too big, with the help of the clueless that are still not wanting to believe who they are supporting.
Or, like that rancher and pig farmer, or some against horse slaughter here, are mercenary, will align themselves blindly with whoever will help them fight for their own cause of the moment they picked up, even if those groups offering help, in principle, are against what they really believe.
Any time there are animal rights groups involved, there is more to the story than is evident and much we will never know.
