Dog breeder pleads guilty, agrees to never sell dogs again

GALLATIN, Tenn. A Gallatin woman has pleaded guilty to charges of animal cruelty and agreed to a lifetime ban on breeding after authorities pulled hundreds of puppies from unsanitary conditions at her home.

In a plea deal approved yesterday, 69-year-old Irene Meuser entered guilty pleas to four charges of animal cruelty. As part of the bargain, Meuser also agreed never to breed animals or own dogs for sale again.
