    I find this very troubling.
    What kind of person wants to make it easier for criminals to abuse animals??
    :(

    A few selections from the piece:

    "Up until late last week, the site also allowed dog buyers to look up specific breeders by license number and see any possible violations under the breeder’s name before buying the animal."
    ...
    "APHIS said the removed documents, which included records of enforcement actions against violators of the Animal Welfare Act [including puppy mills] and the Horse Protection Act, would now be accessible only through Freedom of Information Act requests. Those can take up to a year or more to be approved."
    ...
    "Animal welfare organizations say the removal of the information will allow animal abuse to go unchecked."

    Very disturbing.
