(KTVI) - Ten critically ill Basset Hound puppies were rescued from a breeder in Douglas County on Friday. According to a release from the Humane Society of Missouri the ten week old puppies were suffering from pneumonia, parasites and ear and eye infections. Three of the puppies were so sick that they had to be taken to a critical care facility for intensive treatment.

Three of the puppies in the litter died before investigators arrived. The rescue took place because of a request from the Missouri Department of Agriculture and the U.S. Department of Agriculture. They reported the licensed breeding facility in Douglas County.

    Hey, as usual this is the incomplete story. The Missouri officials pointed out how this is why inspections and regulations on PUPPY BREEDERS in rural Missouri is so important – I guess conservative Fox had to leave that part out, to continue to try to appeal to the brain-dead masses of the radical conservative “guns ‘n bibles” right.

    Fact is, rescues like this hammers home how IMPORTANT it is to VOTE NO on the “freedom to farm” act on the ballot this August – of course, it has nothing to do with the “freedom to farm” because farmers have and have always had that. This bill is actually a “FREEDOM TO ABUSE ANIMALS” amendment, and it deserves to be VOTED DOWN, to keep the few restrictions in place we VOTERS VOTED FOR when we APPROVED the anti-puppy-mill bill that Republicans then overturned.

    So VOTE NO FOR FREEDOM TO ABUSE ANIMALS ON A FARM bill and help prevent sick krap like this from happening. Make these “farmers” (term used very loosely, as these creeps probably know nothing about real farming) go do some work for a living for a change.
