The parent company of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus says it has received a nearly $16 million settlement from the Humane Society of the United States and other animal-rights groups that filed a frivolous lawsuit against them. The lawsuits in federal court in Washington have dragged on for more than a decade. In 2012, a judge said the case, alleging abusive treatment of elephants, was frivolous and forced the circus' owner, Vienna, Virginia-based Feld Entertainment, to spend millions in legal fees.

  • LETTER TO THE EDITOR: King farm bill amendment has support

    Laura Sesana's piece, "The King amendment to the farm bill threatens states' rights" (Web, Sept. 28) reads as if it were authored by the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS). It is clear in reading the column that many of the "facts" about my amendment come directly from the anti-meat organization. Ms. Sesana even links to their website.

  • LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Humane Society fighting to end cruelty

    Contrary to the premise of a recently published article ("Help a puppy, not a lobby," Commentary, Nov. 9), the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) operates life-saving programs that help animals in all 50 states and several dozen countries. Animal shelters are the backbone of the humane movement, and people should support them generously.

    STENHOLM: Wrong approach to animal rights

    Earlier this month, Rep. James P. Moran united with a retired game-show host and a foreign-based animal rights group to introduce legislation that, if passed, would mean not just the end of our cotton-candy memories of the three-ring circus but also the elimination of hundreds of jobs in Mr. Moran's district and thousands more jobs around the country in numerous cities and states. This unnecessary and misguided legislation is being pushed in the name of an extreme animal rights agenda at the expense of jobs all over this country.

    CULP: Help a puppy, not a lobby

    Despite the economic downturn, people are thankfully still giving to charity. Charitable giving rose 2 percent last year. The bad news is that donations to animal charities remained flat. Especially in these difficult times, donors are rightfully concerned about how to get the most bang for their buck. Having worked in the national animal welfare arena for more than 30 years, I've learned the best way to help animals is to avoid the slick national TV appeals for money and to give to local pet shelters.
