Ayrshire puppy farm

December 16, 2016 Leave a comment Go to comments

East Ayrshire Planning Committee will decide on 21st December whether to licence a large scale dog breeding unit in Newmilns.
The applicant is allegedly connected to the operators of a notorious puppy farming outfit in Northern Ireland. More here.

David Bailey, a former Northern Irish government veterinarian, claimed that when he worked for the owners “It was like a production facility that you would expect to find in a bad pig-raising plant. Every animal on the premises was given an antibiotic injection every week, then we’d change the antibiotic every month because we could not control the infections.”

Local Authorities make a big thing of how you can’t object to a planning application on the grounds of animal welfare. We think however that East Ayrshire Council officials should be contacted and asked if they really want to be known as the people who opened the door for the battery farming of dogs in Scotland.
