More Evidence of Puppy Mill Cruelty

The Columbia Tribune reports on more evidence of puppy mill cruelty in Missouri, focusing on a new report by the Human Society. Among other things, the report found:
  • 40 dogs allegedly found dumped in 2008 in an open site in the woods near Lebanon and suspected by Humane Society investigators to be connected to a local dog breeder with a history of poor practices.
  • Dead dogs strewn in piles of trash in 2009 during an inspection of the Doolittle Kennel near Rolla. Doolittle was unlicensed in September 2009 when state officials removed 100 sickly, malnourished dogs from the location.
  • As many as 10 dogs shot in the head by the boyfriend of a licensed breeder in 2008 in Mercer. The licensee had previously been cited by inspectors for dogs that died from extreme cold temperatures and dogs found severely emaciated. The breeder no longer is licensed by the state.
