    Missouri Tea Partiers, Joe The Plumber Join Movement Against 'Radical' Anti-Puppy Mill Legislation

    Dog bites man or man bites dog?

    A conservative group in Missouri is picking up the backing of the Tea Party and Joe The Plumber in its quest to stop the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) and other animal rights groups from passing "radical" anti-puppy mill legislation.

    The measure, which can be read in full here, is called Proposition B or the "Puppy Mill Cruelty Prevention Act." It aims to help eliminate the "3000 puppy mills" in Missouri that constitute "30% of all puppy mills in the U.S.," according to Michael Markarian, the Chief Operating Officer of the HSUS.

    The HSUS is a national animal rights advocacy group that doesn't financially support local Humane Society shelters.

    "This measure would provide common sense standards for the care of dogs," Markarian told TPM, including sufficient food and clean water, vet care, regular exercise, and adequate rest between breeding cycles, among other things. Markarian said the measure only applies to "commercial dog breeding facilities" that have more than 10 breeding females who they use for "producing puppies for the pet trade."

    Sounds pretty straightforward, no?

    These people are unhinged.

    These are probably the same people that defended Michael Vick.

    WTF are thirty percent of all puppy mills in Missouri? Something is wrong there. I don't see how any thinking person can oppose this bill.

    When it comes to one side (either side) screaming about babies or puppies, it should always beg the question 'what are they trying to hide'. It's a tactic, Mad.... attach some crap bill behind a good bill and then scream 'why do *republicans/democrats (delete as applicable) hate *children/gays/military/animals/poor people/minorities (delete as applicable).

    I think the law is a good thing. It seems the one problem with it as I can tell, is that as the law reads it limits a "person" to owning at maximum 50 dogs for breeding purposes. Now I don't know anything about breeding dogs but I could imagine that itd be easy for one business to own many dogs at one location or many locations across the state and could easily surpass that 50 dog limit. Now if they are able to conform to all the other stipulatons of this legislation I don't see why they should be limited to 50 dogs. Whats the purpose of that if they are being taken care of properly? It maybe costing the business money.
