Surgically removing voice box of dogs in Minnesota Puppymill
OUTRAGOUS! THIS MAN WANTS TO DE-BARK DOGS TO START HIS PUPPY MILL!
Dateline: Little Falls, Minnesota
Crime: Surgically removing the voice box of animals
Below is a story that I just can’t believe I’m reading in the 21st century. Published in Minneapolis Star Tribune by reporter Paul Levy, it educates us on a situation where a man wants to surgically remove the voice box of dogs to be able to start a puppy mill in his rural area.
Two things come to mind: First, he should have the procedure done to himself first so he can experience what he is about to do to these animals.
Second, why is there such a procedure anyway? I am guessing Veterinarians don’t have to take a hypotactic oath for their patients.
Please read the article, and then click on the petition to do what we can to stop this from happening. It’s unheard of that we even have to put together a campaign to stop this kind of thing in today’s world. My hopes were we would have evolved past this kind of Neanderthal thinking, but here lies an example of someone who has not yet “evolved”.
One voice at a time can change the world.
Animals are here as a test to our character.

Little Falls kennel had violations, USDA files show
Gary McDuffee, who intends to open a dog-breeding operation in Morrison County, had said there have never been complaints against him in his 25 years in the business. USDA records say otherwise.
It was the size of the proposed 600-adult small-dog kennel in Belle Prairie Township - and McDuffee's comment that he planned to surgically debark some of the dogs - that generated a "Stop the Puppymill in Morrison County, Minnesota" Internet petition, which has collected about 12,000 signatures
McDuffee, 52, who said he will retire from his special education teacher's job at the end of the school year, refused to say when his new kennel will open. He would say only that he planned to sell puppies to pet shops and private owners nationwide and that his dogs wouldn't be sold for laboratory purposes.
The county board has been inundated with so many complaints from across the nation that the commissioners no longer list their e-mail addresses on the county Web pages.
Roger Nelson, who owns the Belle Prairie township farm next to the new kennel location, said he plans to appeal the board's decision not to do any additional environmental studies of how dog manure might affect area wetlands.Marshall Tanick, the Minneapolis attorney hired by a group fighting the dog kennel, said Nelson's suit would be filed within the next week and an additional suit, challenging the conditional-use permit that allows the kennel is expected to be filed as well.
