Note: Kitty Block assumed the CEO position at the animal rights organisation HSUS, after Wayne Pacelle resigned. The HSUS is a kind of PETA in a smoking, they position and present themselves differently, more serious and willing to compromise, which they are not in reality. They want to destroy zoos as much as PETA does, they only cover it with more friendliness and subtleness, but this is easily unmasked when you look closely.
