WTF??? (can I type that??)
WTF??? (can I type that??)
Who wouldn't love that face???
I just read that Today...I had no idea.
Interesting. What types of people is this bill going after anyways? Puppy mills, backyard breeders and such? So does that mean that advertising on Craigslist is a no-no as well?
Interesting law, I don't necessarily like or dislike it - it just seems like it's more of an inconvenience for all due to the behavior of a few.
The article goes a bit overboard and really implies a lot of unrealistic assumptions and ends with the sentence "So be warned, Californians. Soon you can be a criminal just for selling a dog.", which is so far from the truth, the whole story lost any credibility for me.
People will continue to evolve their methods to achieve their goals, regardless of how hard the "legal" system tries to mandate a pre-programmed civilization.
Just remember that 98.34% of all people will make up statistics 86.27% of the time that lean towards their own opinion by at least 51%. Of course I'm not 100% sure about that...
Here's a good write-up:

It's really sad.
I've been fighting regulations against snake ownership for years. It's difficult when most people care a lot about dogs and cats but hates snakes. Those of us who love our pet snakes just as much as our pet dogs have a much harder time of it, but so far, we've been able to keep these crazy regulations at bay.
But this one - you would think the millions of dog and cat people would band together to fight this bill. It's scary to think that if dog/cat lovers are hoodwinked into this bill what chance have we snake lovers have???
I got Bullied and loving it!

Just another way for Big Brother to get into every aspect of our lives. What next...........our pants? Pitiful, just plain pitiful. How can people tell who's getting into office when like this happens after they take office. Outta control. Land of the free? nothing is really free. Underground sales and puppy mills will run rampant without any control. Sorry, California-cation
Life is like a box of chocolate covered
This article is a piece of crap..and I hardly believe the humane society is an"animal extremist" group. As usual playing on peoples fears. Guess what?? As a Californian..this law was supported by the citizens. This is to STOP puppy mills from dumping puppies and the selling of them in mom and pop pet stores..you know..the ones that pay $50 for a mixed breed pup and resell it in their store for hundreds..and buy from the crappiest of breeders and resell in these same stores. It's not to stop responsible breeders from selling their animals. From the first sentence stating "governor moonbeam Brown"..any intelligent self thinking person should be able to smell the crap this is selling. People..quit falling for anything you read online or maybe see on Fox news. If you don't like it..tough..we like it. I will still be able to buy my animals...but I will have to go through legitimate channels to do so. Not out of a car in a parking lot or a swap meet or a pet store unlicensed for selling live animals. Talk about knee jerk..stop already!
My concern with this is the fact that it is ALLOWING puppies to be sold in pet stores, a practice I find sickening. They are the largest puppy mill supporters.
If the intent was to stop puppy mills, then ban puppy mills... California continues to amaze me, and I'm from California. So now if want a puppy, you have to go to a puppy mill in someone's private property to buy it, but you also are unable to buy a hamster from the pet store. So you have not stopped the puppy mills, but you shut down numerous businesses... smart move.
Didn't San Francisco ban toys from happy meals, then try to ban keeping goldfish in a bowl? Just more control on peoples lives... you can blame Fox News for reporting it, but I'll give them credit, because this mentality bothers me. Keep it in California where the residents are happy about it, please please please
I read the original post again and will correct myself... pet stores are not considered "public" however, sounds like they are working on a fix "the animal rights groups in California are also lobbying intensely to ban sales of purpose-bred pets in pet stores"
