Noted Class B Dog And Cat Dealer C.C. Baird Convicted Of Felonies: Who Is CC Baird? What Are USDA Class B Dealers and Why a Bill Aims To Stop Them

This came from Last Chance for Animals at http://www.lcanimal.org/

Excellent news though for the hell and suffering he caused (see video here: http://www.hbo.com/docs/programs/dealingdogs/index.html) he did get off light. Yet, the good thing is that his prosecution brings to light Class B dog and cat dealers and may very well lead to passage of the Pet Safety and Protection Act which aims to end Class B dealers and, in effect, pet theft.

For more information on CC Baird, USDA Class B dog and cat dealers, why they need to be stopped and the Pet Safety and Protection Act that aims to stop the slimy world of Class B dealers see

CLASS "B" DEALER C.C. BAIRD'S FINAL SENTENCING

C.C. BAIRD AND HIS WIFE ARE CONVICTED FELONS!
As you may recall, Class "B" Dealer C.C. Baird settled his civil case for
violations of the Animal Welfare Act back in February 2005. TODAY, Friday,
July 14, 2006, BAIRD WAS SENTENCED IN FEDERAL COURT!

The largest USDA-licensed Class "B" animal dealer and pet theft ring
operator was sentenced to 3 years probation and 6 months home detention
following his guilty plea in August 2005 to felony charges of conspiracy to
launder money in an operation involving the sale of dogs and cats to
research laboratories. Baird's wife, Patsy, was sentenced to 2 years
probation for misprision of felony mail fraud. The Baird's criminal fines
were $10,000.

"Justice is served as the Baird case has set a precedent for future
prosecutions against violators of the Animal Welfare Act. Now that Baird has
been successfully prosecuted and is a convicted felon, prosecuting future
abusers will be much easier. Baird's conviction will also help immensely in
the fight to pass the Pet Safety and Protection Act. This is a great victory
and an important step in realizing LCA's goal of bringing justice to those
that abuse animals." --LCA President Chris DeRose

The case against Baird comprised the largest multi-agency (federal, state
and local) investigation of animal abuse in U.S. history. LCA's
investigation was also the subject of the recent HBO America Undercover
documentary, Dealing Dogs.
