Carlsbad repeals pet sales ban

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Cats and dogs may soon be back in Carlsbad pet stores after the city council overturned a ban that prohibited their sale.

That ban was reversed Tuesday in a 3-to-2 vote.

The ban was originally intended to discourage adoptions from for-profit sellers, who activists claim are just fronts for puppy mills.

A month after it was put in place, the council decided that unscrupulous breeders are the problem not the pet stores.
