Isthmus on WORT: How Wisconsin's dog seller regulations may legitimize animal mistreatment

"The Puppy Mill Bill" was championed as a way to prevent Wisconsin from becoming a magnet for inhumane and irresponsible dog breeders, attracted by the state's absence of laws as other states enacted more restrictions. It passed both houses of the Legislature unanimously. But the law is more about licensing sellers and imposing minimum standards than it is about putting puppy mills out of business.

Isthmus features editor Linda Falkenstein reported on how dog sellers in Wisconsin are licensed and monitored in the June 27 issue, and discussed her story with WORT producer Dylan Brogan on the June 26 edition of In Our Backyard.
