missouri's puppy mill bill gutted

missouri missouri missouri, i shake my fist at you.

proposition b, a bill to bring humane breeding laws to the state known as the puppy mill capital of the country, was narrowly passed by missouri voters last november.  now, the state assembly has just passed new legislation that would gut the bill and keep the puppy mills churning.

their must be some real greasy palms in that house.

citizens are outraged and already planning demonstrations to encourage governor Nixon to veto the bill, but can animal welfare override politics?  let's hope so.
