Pacelle on Ellen Urging Nixon to Veto Prop B Rollback

Wayne Pacelle digs dogs.
The Missouri legislature has voted to pull most of the teeth out of Prop B, the voter-approved bill that would drastically tighten oversight of dog-breeding operations in Missouri. A bill to repeal almost all of Prop B's restrictions is now awaiting a signature or veto from Gov. Jay Nixon.

The matter continues to be a lighting rod. F'rinstance, right now on Ellen Degeneres' talk show, Wayne Pacelle, the polarizing president of the Humane Society of the United States, is getting national audiences riled up about the situation here in Missouri. It's airing on KSDK Channel 5.

Degeneres and Pacelle are urging viewers to contact Nixon's office to ask him to veto the measure. Nixon's office has said that he is examining the issue closely before deciding.

If Nixon allows the bill to become the law, the pro-Prop B group Missourians for the Protection of Dogs has vowed to force the legislation to a referendum -- thereby taking the issue back to the voters for a second vote.

As per usual Ellen chiming in on something she knows nothing about taking sides with someone who is a complete fraud and liar. HSUS are a sham and a disgrace and should be shut down but NO...Ellen has them on her show acting like she knows something. How do such morons get such positions.

The HSUS doesn't always follow what I believe is correct, either. However, they do have the power to help give puppy mill dogs a better life. Being on Ellen's show gave a national audience to these dogs who have no voice. I hope all puppy mills are shut down, all breeders have to comply with the ORIGINAL conditions of Proposition B, and that they know that the nation is watching!
