Forrest and Charlotte Lucas, owners of Lucas Oil Products and Lucas Cattle Company, are taking a political stand by opposing a Missouri ballot initiative known as Proposition B (or the "Puppy Mill Cruelty Prevention Act"). The Lucas’ firmly believe that this proposition is deceptive and misleading as to its true purpose. The proposition is heavily supported by the Humane Society of the United States, a political activist group known for radical positions on so called "animal rights". The Lucas’, and many other informed individuals, believe that the true purpose of Proposition B is to impose unrealistic and unnecessary regulations upon the Dog Breeding industry of Missouri, so as to make it a financially undesirable business enterprise. Effectively, this would shut down many legitimate and properly run dog breeding businesses in Missouri and result in the loss of thousands of Missouri jobs, with a negative economic impact into the millions.
The State of Missouri already has a comprehensive set of laws on its books to properly regulate the dog breeding industry. The Lucas’ believe that enforcement of the existing laws is the appropriate course of action. Proposition B is a direct attack on the personal liberty of Missouri citizens and a threat to the State’s agri-business. Forrest and Charlotte Lucas encourage you to learn the truth about Proposition B and the radical organization behind it.
