I don't know why so many breeders are against it. I mean it states quite clearly that decent breeders will not have to spay and neuter their animals. It's mostly to stop BYB, and Moggies from being bred.
I sent the clip to my aunt, and she thought I was against the bill so they obviously didn't show enough to make my views clear. Oh well, doesn't matter now.
I don't understand it either. When I started hearing about it, I thought it was probably a good thing, but wanted to read both sides of the argument and hadn't formed an opinion. I knew that there had to be a reason so many people were so vocally against it. I went to a local open meeting a few weeks ago still a little on the fence, but more in favour than not. After hearing all the same lame arguments against the bill, and not hearing anything convincing why it shouldn't be passed, except that breeders didn't want to pay more money, I got more and more angry, and am now very much for it.
I've been trying to understand why people are against it, and sure, it's not the best bill, but I think the positives HUGELY outweigh the negatives.
