Puppy mill bill passes in Missouri
The extremely controversial bill intended to crack down on large-scale Missouri breeders narrowly passed last night.
The Kansas City Star reports that the bill had about 51 percent of the vote with nearly all precincts reporting. Known as the "puppy mill bill," Proposition B would limit the number of breeding dogs a breeder could have, increase living space for animals, expand requirements for vet care and create criminal penalties for those who violate these standards.
The bill will become law next November.
