OKLAHOMA CITY -- Many thought it was over, but in fact the dog fight rages on at the state Capitol. A year after anti-puppy mill legislation was passed, a new bill is circulating that would stop the new rules from going into effect. That bill is taking the fight into the eleventh hour.
It's nick-named the "Puppy Mill Bill" because advocates hope it will force inhumane breeding operations known as puppy mills to close. It's actually called The Oklahoma Commercial Pet Breeders Act and, beyond closing down puppy mills, the law aims to reduce the pet overpopulation problem by regulating breeders.
