It is inconceivable that such an operation recently closed by the SPCA has dated back many years according to some [Puppy seizure largest in B.C. history, Feb. 11, Langley Advance].
Perhaps such oversights wouldn’t have happened if the Campbell government hadn’t been allowed to deregulate many industries as they did. Maybe breeding operations were never regulated, but absolutely should be.
Regulations and licensing, minus bureaucratic zealousness, can go a long way toward preventing such tragedies in breeding and many other industries.
Hairstyling and aesthetics come to mind, as well.
