TODAY'S QUESTION: What do you think about Proposition B?
Wednesday, September 15, 2010 | 12:34 p.m. CDT
Voters will soon shape the future of dog breeding in Missouri.
Proposition B, formally known as the Puppy Mill Cruelty Prevention Act, aims to prohibit cruel treatment of dogs in large breeding operations and requires proper nourishment, shelter and veterinary care for them.
Supporters of Proposition B gathered Monday evening at Cafe Berlin to hear the president of The Humane Society of the United States speak about the statute's importance. He argued that there had never been a more important dog protection measure in the history of the United States.
Opponents of Proposition B also gathered Monday outside Cafe Berlin to protest. They say the regulations would require expensive renovations for dog breeders.
The measure is on the November ballot.
What do you think? Do you support Proposition B?
