Lawmakers told lack of regulations for dog breeders allows neglect
State lawmakers were told Wednesday that a lack of regulations for dog-breeders has caused numerous pets to be killed, hurt and neglected.
A public hearing was held on a bill to require state licenses and inspections for commercial dog-breeders with more than 25 animals.
Wisconsin is one of only a few states without such regulations. And Yvonne Bellay of the state agriculture department says breeders have moved to Wisconsin to take advantage of the lack of laws.
