IRVINE – The latest chapter in a fast-growing debate over animal welfare in puppy mills and other venues played out Tuesday night in Irvine, where elected officials backed government intervention to safeguard pets and animals used for entertainment.
On a 4-1 vote that drew a standing ovation, the City Council banned retail sales of dogs and cats, rodeos and circuses featuring exotic animals.
