Way to go North Carolina! After so many months of bad animal news out of North Carolina we finally have some good news. Susie’s Law was signed into law by NC Governor Beverly Perdue. The law reclassifies animal cruelty from a Class I to a Class H felony, meaning that convicted abusers can be sent to jail for up to 10 months.
Do USDA inspectors get paid off by puppy millers or are they just so darn lazy and don’t care that thousands of dogs are being tortured and murdered by these evil humans? Or maybe the USDA inspectors don’t care that every puppy mill dog sold through pet shops means the potential for thousands of dollars in unnecessary vet bills and years of heart ache for unsuspecting buyers.
Whatever the reason, its time for MAJOR overhaul of the USDA and the laws and regulations governing puppy mills. We have got to start treating these hells as the societal cancers they are. A recent ABC report shed much needed light on how USDA inspectors take public dollars to do a job they seem incapable of doing.
