Anne 2010 said: "Likewise, it is readily apparent to local law enforcement if someone is failing to provide outdoor access for dogs." Since it is already current law that kennel dogs have access to outside space, as well as an approved plan of exercise by the Attending Vet, it should already be apparent if they don't have that access.
Anne2010 also said: "Under existing law, you need a tape measure, a calculator, and animal handlers to determine if the space requirements are being violated." No animal handlers are required to calculate the current space requirements, though you will still need a calculator and a pae measure to determine the space requirements under Prop B.

VOTE NO ON PROP B!
PROP. B IS ALL ABOUT H$U$!! Prop. B does NOTHING to the unlawful and unlicensed breeder! It is designed to eliminate animal agriculture, and the LAWFUL AND LICENSED in Missouri. Under Prop. B's proposed area requirements five chihuahuas would 'require' 1,000 sq. ft. of living space (read the bill, do the math). Many families within Jasper county live in less space! Prop. B is horribly flawed in its intent and its creation and promotion by non-Missouri proponents. Check with the MO Ethics Commission--97% of ALL FUNDING for 'vote yes' on Prop. B is NON-Missouri dollars! Send these 'carpetbaggers' packing! Vote NO on Prop. B November 2.Updated: 2010-10-05 08:49:42
Prop B is not about the HSUS, it is about Missouri's dogs. The fact is that Prop B makes enforcement more likely. Each of these new criminal provisions better lend themselves to easy identification and prosecution by local law enforcement, because the officer can easily count the number of breeding dogs, etc., and could testify in court that the property had more than 50 breeding dogs without the need for experts. Likewise, it is readily apparent to local law enforcement if someone is failing to provide outdoor access for dogs. Under existing law, you need a tape measure, a calculator, and animal handlers to determine if the space requirements are being violated. This is one of the many many reasons that more than 100 Missouri veterinarians urge a YES vote on Prop B. You can find more of the facts at www.yesonpropb.com
