WENTZVILLE, MO (KTVI-FOX2now.com) – Wentzville debates partial ban of dog and cat sales. One alderman hopes a new ordinance will help stop “puppy mills.” The City of Wentzville, this week, will debate banning the sale of some dogs and cats. Alderman Nick Guccione said he watched our FOX Files investigation of a large breeder and its St. Peters pet store. He said it’s not the first time he’s seen the problem, but he hopes it’s one of the last, “I’m just tired of seeing the puppies. No one will stand up for them.”
In our July expose Alderman Guccione saw how breeders Herman and Bonnie Schindler were so concerned about us getting close to their Mexico, Missouri breeding ground they hit our camera. Guccione responded, “If they’re not hiding nothing, you should have access.”
USDA inspection records document repeat offenses of sick dogs and employees saddled with caring for as many as 100 animals apiece. Guccione added, “That’s way too many. Some people can’t even care for one or two dogs.”
