In an effort to protect puppy mills that abuse and neglect their animals from public scrutiny, USDA is proposing regulations that would prohibit the public from having access to USDA inspection reports of such facilities. Currently USDA has a “policy” prohibiting the release of inspection reports of puppy mills. Now, however,
USDA hopes to permanently
deny such information to the public and is proposing to adopt “regulations” that would prohibit the release of such reports.
Most shocking, USDA has closed the comment period on the proposed regulations prior to the 30 days allowed for public comment.
SPEAK OUT FOR THE ANIMALS!
