"Well i'm dissapointed they would chose to do that.I think it is something we need to do.From a public safety standpoint it's an issue that needs to be addressed in Missouri."

At an earlier hearing, the opponents of the bill claimed a few isolated incidents could punish the whole breeding industry.
