“Ireland, to its shame, is the puppy farming capital of Europe”

28 Feb

“Ireland, to its shame, is the puppy farming capital of Europe. Some estimates putting it at up to 100,000 puppies a year. This is often in industrial scale breeding conditions – battery conditions similar to battery pigs or battery chickens. Really horrific. Huge profits are being made from horrific animal cruelty, which was exposed in a ‘Panorama’ programme almost two years ago. My question to the Minister is ‘What action is the Government going to take to clamp down on this cruelty and stop this industrial-scale breeding?'” – Dublin South West politician Paul Murphy TD (Solidarity) highlights the cruelty of Ireland’s shameful puppy farming industry (Dail Eireann, Wednesday, 21 February 2018). https://www.kildarestreet.com/debates/?id=2018-02-21a.41&s=paul+murphy#g45
