Atlanta’s Fox station, WAGA is doing a two-part series on the state Dept of Agriculture’s lack of oversight of the breeder/pet store industry in the state.

Investigative reporter Randy Travis started with a woman here in Toccoa who has been convicted TWICE in neighboring South Carolina of animal neglect and abuse.

Hopefully, that story will be on the Fox5 Web story later tonight. Here’s the link:;jsessionid=595A9C2F52A6EF5F735E44EE3B821BC7?contentId=6578494&version=1&locale=EN-US&layoutCode=VSTY&pageId=1.1.1&sflg=1
