In the limelight or headlights? Missouri puppy mill bill foe on The Daily Show

Voters in Missouri on Nov. 2 approved a referendum to vastly improve conditions for dogs living in commercial dog kennels in the state that can stake claim as being the puppy mill capital of the nation. 

Breeders and the farm industry are already vowing to weaken or destroy the new law with legislation.

Among the objections by the "Alliance for Truth" - one of the referendum's leading opposition groups, whose website has since gone kerpoof - is that requiring adequate water and food and space was "exhorbitant care" and as for dog cage stacking? "Well, humans live in apartments, don't they?"

Hear their explanation - no tongue in cheek - on The Daily Show.
