Target: Hastings City Council
Goal: Revoke kennel owner’s business license for inhumane drowning of puppies.
Dayna Bell of Bell Kennels and Farm faces 16 counts of animal cruelty for drowning puppies at her kennel in Minnesota. The woman has found a potential loophole to the charges, claiming that the animals were commercial and are therefore protected under different laws. The woman must be stopped from her cruel and inhumane practice by having her business license revoked.
Several former employees have come forward to report the unscrupulous business practices of Dayna Bell. These individuals have witnessed firsthand Bell drowning puppies in buckets and also throwing them into a pool with cinder blocks tied around their necks. Bell also admitted to employees on one occasion that she had broken the neck of a small dog that bit her. Authorities that investigated the kennel found the bodies of 10 dogs in Bell’s freezer. It is abundantly clear that this woman should not be working with animals.
Bell has posted bond and continues to work at her kennel while awaiting legal proceedings. She seeks to have all charges dropped on the basis that her animals are commercial and not covered under laws that protect pets. Bell must not be allowed to continue practicing business, regardless of the court’s pending decision. By signing the petition below, you can ask the Hastings City Council to revoke Dayna Bell’s business license.
Dear Hastings City Council Members,
Dayna Bell of Bell Kennels and Farm has a sordid history of animal abuse. Multiple witnesses have watched as she drowned puppies. She has also boasted about breaking a dog’s neck. Police have also found the frozen bodies of ten dogs in her freezer. This woman clearly has no respect for the lives of animals and should not be operating a kennel.
Unfortunately, Bell has posted bond and continues her business practice. She may also escape animal cruelty charges on the grounds that these dogs were “commercial” rather than “pets”. Depending on the court’s decision, Bell may be allowed to continue her work and more dogs will be made victims of her abuse. Please ensure that Dayna Bell is never again allowed to run a kennel by revoking her business license.
