From Eric Dolan, Raw Story
Missouri Republicans are flocking to a call to fight socialism at all costs, even if it means killing a few puppies.
Republican State Senator Bill Stouffer filed legislation to repeal a bill aimed at curbing cruel and inhumane treatment of dogs by breeders last week.
The Missouri Dog Breeding Regulation Initiative, Proposition B, known as the "Puppy Mill Cruelty Prevention Act," requires large-scale dog-breeders to provide basic food and water, adequate shelter, necessary veterinary care, adequate space, regular exercise, and adequate rest between breeding cycles to dogs under their care. The bill also prevents breeders from owning more than 50 breeding dogs.

I'm sorry this isn't much of a diary, but I think the article speaks for itself.
There never seems to be an end to the amount of cruelty some Republicans will unleash in order make political gains.
Please help us to make this article go viral and please call State Senator Bill Stouffer's office and complain if you support animal rights legislation.
