(ABC 6 NEWS) – The president of the Humane Society of the United States stopped by Rochester Wednesday evening.

Wayne Pacelle was at the Barnes & Noble in the Apache Mall promoting his new book.

The visit came just a few weeks after several area TV stations, including ABC 6 News, pulled a controversial political ad produced by the U.S. Humane Society.

The group attacked Iowa congressman Steve King over the issue of dog fighting, despite the fact that King has stated he is absolutely against it.

King is running against Christie Vilsack, wife of U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack.
