AG Wants Mo Dog Breeder Shut Down
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (KMOX) – Missouri’s Attorney General takes the first action against a dog breeder under new state laws.
Moser Kennel in Lawrence County is under a temporary restraining order. The owner, Linda Brisco, accused of multiple violations.
Attorney General Chris Koster says state inspections of Brisco’s kennels revealed excrement in the food and muddy drinking water; feces piled so high in some enclosures, inspectors couldn’t see the flooring; sick, aging or young animals kept in outdoor kennels without appropriate shelter; and animals in distress given no veterinary care.
Plus, Koster alleges the owner used a shotgun to put the animals down — a practice prohibited by state law.
The Attorney General is asking the court to permanently put Brisco out of business. Koster says it is the first case using new rules enacted in a compromise bill governing Missouri massive dog breeding industry.
