YOUR TURN: More on the pet neutering controversy

WMC-TV 5 V.P. & General Manager Lee Meredith WMC-TV 5 V.P. & General Manager Lee Meredith

This week's "Your Turn" segment goes to Kathryn Baxter. Baxter is a pet owner who is unhappy about proposals that would bring about mandatory neutering of the pet population.

In her words:

Mandatory spaying and neutering is not the answer to the pet overpopulation. Not all of us who have fertile dogs are back yard breeders. Many of us are involved in dog shows, field trials, hunting, and tracking. If and when we breed, our homework is done, meaning that all of the pedigrees have been studied for generations back, genetic testing is conducted, and proper veterinary care has been established. It's time for those of us who have fertile dogs and cats to stand up and make our opinions known. We should not have our rights legislated away from us. The futures of our sports and hobbies are at stake.

That's Kathryn Baxter's turn. Now it's your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, email yourturn@wmctv.com or call 800-465-1210.
