Shouldn't Happen to a Dog

2nd amendment remedy On the Internet, no one knows you're dodging the voters. Haha, according to the Daily Herald ...
The Mundelein village board on Monday voted to formally ask state lawmakers to amend the Illinois Animal Welfare Act and prohibit the inhumane treatment of dogs in commercial breeding facilities. The move comes less than two months after the board approved new rules for pet stores -- rules that weren't as strict as those sought by animal welfare activists and some trustees. Instead of forbidding the sale of dogs and cats from commercial breeders, the board in November decided Mundelein pet stores must obtain special village licenses and publicly display breeding information about the dogs and cats they sell.
Mundelein asks state to prohibit cruelty to dogs by commercial breeders
As readers of this blog are doggedly aware ...
A Shaggy Dog Story
... the Village of Mundelein had failed, last year, to pass an ordinance banning the sale of puppy-mill dogs.

The Mundelein Village board however was able to pass, this week, the buck back to Springfield. One source told your LakeCountyEye: "Let the State outlaw those dogs. Mundelein needs all the sales tax revenue it can get."

It is unknown if the the Mundelein village board also voted to formally ask state lawmakers to raise the Illinois DUI ceiling "up a couple notches".

Your LakeCountyEye will keep you apprised when further developments warrant.
