Message from CAPS President Deborah Howard:
I was misquoted. Bauck did not perform C-sections while our investigator was there. She was trying to deliver puppies, some of whom were stillborn, and used a clamp to pull the puppies out of the mother. Prior to her plea bargain for the illegal use of penicillin even though employees had witnessed her doing C-sections and killing a puppy by bashing it against a pole, Bauck most likely would have performed a C-section, without anesthesia, on the mother dog who hemorrhaged to death.

Summary: NEW YORK MILLS, Minn. (KSAX) – A New York Mills dog breeding operation has finally shut down after years of alleged animal cruelty.
Pick of the Litter was part of a 6 week undercover investigation conducted by a non-profit organization, which led to owner Kathy Bauck’ USDA license being permanently revoked.
Dr. Rose of Lakeland Veterinary Clinic in Perham said the so-called puppy mill has been the speculation of animal cruelty for nearly 30 years and Bauck has been abusing and killing innocent puppies.
