Anti-Puppy Farm Bill Passed - Hurrah!
Update on that situation. The Labour Party recovered their moral backbone and supported this bill. I expect they got a lot of flack from their members - my mother included! - when they voted against the stag-hunting bill, which thankfully also passed. There are many ethical and upright dog breeders in this country but up to now there have also been puppy farms where the most horrific abuses occurred, e.g. bitches bred till they died, exhausted, and animals kept in appalling conditions. The ISPCA and the gardaí have always known who the perpetrators are but could no nothing about it. Now they can!
