I so appreciated the editorial regarding puppy mills (in Sept. 6 Montana Standard). I was one of the participants of the recent protest in Polson. We are not crazies, nor are we secret agents for PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals). We are concerned citizens who are horrified at the conditions in puppy mills.
If this readership has the stomach to look at pictures of puppy mill "residents," then I would encourage them to look at the never-ending horrors.
We are one of the few remaining states that don't have some sort of puppy mill laws. Why do we remain in this state of inertia? At least a law against puppy mills would give law enforcement some leverage in prosecuting these greedy, soul-less "millers."
Thank you again.
