USDA revokes license of dog dealer in Wells


WELLS, Minn. (FOX 47) -- The USDA has revoked the license of a dog dealer in Wells.

The move follows a recent undercover investigation by the Humane Society of the United States involving dogs undergoing deadly dental experiments at Georgia Regents University.

A USDA complaint filed in September alleged Kenneth Schroeder committed multiple and serious violations of the Animal Welfare Act, including obtaining dogs from illegal sources, failure on multiple occasions to provide USDA access to his property and poor sanitation.

Schroeder and the USDA came to a settlement on Jan. 15. He had what the USDA calls a random-source Class B dealer license, allowing him to gather dogs from various sources and resell them to research facilities.

There are only five licensed Class B dealers remaining in the nation.
