JEFFERSON CITY — St. Louis Cardinals manager Tony La Russa is going to bat for a Missouri ballot measure that would impose new rules on dog breeders.
La Russa appears in a new TV ad promoting Proposition B on Missouri's Nov. 2 statewide ballot. The spot identifies La Russa as a founder of a group called the Animal Rescue Foundation, not as the Cardinals manager.
Proposition B would limit Missourians to having 50 breeding dogs. The dogs would have to be fed daily, get annual veterinary care and not be bred more than twice every 18 months.
Critics contend the measure would affect those who already follow the rules and could make it more expensive to keep dogs as pets. Some also fear it could be a precursor to efforts to restrict livestock production in Missouri.
