Puppy and kitten pet shop sales set to be banned in Wales

About time - will the rest of the country follow?

The sale of puppies and kittens through pet shops would be banned in Wales under plans being put out to consultation.

Wales' Rural Affairs Minister Lesley Griffiths said there was clear evidence such sales can contribute to an increase risk of disease.

The move would mean buyers would have to deal directly with a breeder or a re-homing centre.

People have until 17 May to give their views on the ban.
The UK government has consulted on a similar ban in England - dubbed Lucy's Law, named after a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel rescued from a puppy farm.
