Subject: AKC Legislative Alert: Court of Appeals Rules in Favor of USDA


The AKC's Canine Legislation department has just learned that the US Court
of Appeals has ruled in favor of the US Department of Agriculture in its
appeal of a lawsuit brought by the Doris Day Animal League. The ruling,
which reverses a lower court's decision, upholds the USDA's interpretation
of the Animal Welfare Act to exempt hobby breeders from federal licensing
and inspection requirements. Please watch our Web site tomorrow for further
details.

The ruling, which reversed a lower court's decision, rejects arguments by Doris Day Animal League and other animal rights groups that wanted to bring residential breeders under the umbrella of the Animal Welfare Act<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
