The state of Maine is considering legislation that will, if enacted, ban the practice of importing animals purchased from out of state. It seeks to prohibit pet stores from selling cats and dogs that were not raised in that shop. The bill is the first of its kind to be introduced in a state that seeks to target large-scale animal breeding operations (aka puppy mills).
Animal rights groups that support such legislation allege the practice of selling animals bed from out of state is cruel and inhumane. However, what the real goal of such efforts is to shut down breeders and their kennels deemed by pro-animal groups regardless if they are in state or not. According to Central Maine News, a small amount of the nearly 80 pet stores in Maine sell dogs and cats while total sales average about less than 500 annually.
Also, opponents of so-called puppy mills claim that animals bred and sold from these facilities, mainly located in the mid-West, are of poor health due to overcrowded and unsanitary conditions. Yet each of the facilities in question are regulated and inspected by the US Department of Agriculture and state agencies too. The USDA also has a certification process where breeders and kennels agree to abide by routine inspections and standards to ensure their facilities are safe and cruelty free. Furthermore, as one opponent of the bill stresses instead of a blanket ban on substandard breeders and kennels, target individual ones. Not all of them are cruel or have bad conditions for the animals they breed.
Demonizing so-called puppy mills is a sinister manner to run pet shops out of business. So-called animal rights groups seek to outlaw such practices because they hate the idea of having animals bred for domesticated purposes. They use broad generalizations and outright lies in order to further their cause of not only preventing the usage of animals for ownership by humans but also to destroy our economy. Puppy mills are a smoke screen to hide the evil purpose of animal rights organizations. Their goal with legislation like Maine’s is to run pet stores out of business and throw hundreds of thousands of employees that directly and indirectly work in the pet industry out of work.
Animal rights is nothing not only a means of achieving the end of sacrificing mankind to the needs of nature but also to achieve the goal of subjecting mankind to the savagery of the animal kingdom since it is the barbarism of that world that animal rights groups worship.
