New York Mills, Minn. (WDAY TV) – The undercover video shows disturbing pictures of sick, injured, and even dead dogs. As the Minnesota legislature prepared to hear a proposal to crack down on puppy mills, an animal-rights group has posted a documentary on-line that was shot at a controversial dog breeder’s farm near New York Mills, Minnesota.

An Otter Tail County jury convicted Kathy Jo Bauck of misdemeanor animal cruelty. Now this video, which may be unsettling for some to watch, has brought her story to the forefront in a documentary sweeping the nation on the internet.

A man posing as someone wanting a job at the Bauck Farm shot the video with an undercover camera. It shows troubling pictures of dogs that have died or have open wounds.

Pick of the litter in New York Mills Minnesota has been one of the largest USDA licensed dog breeder farms in the country. Long a target of allegations of animal abuse and neglect, Kathy Bauck has been in the business since the early 80’s.

We had the Humane Society of Fargo Moorhead watch the undercover documentary which has been posted on animal rights web sites around the country.

But the attorney for Kathy Bauck says, not so fast. Zenas Baer says take a look at the man behind the camera. Baer says allegations of abuse and neglect against Bauck is unfounded.

While Bauck has lost her USDA license, her attorney confirmed to us, she is still selling dogs. The USDA has no jurisdiction over the internet.

    Anyone who buys a dog and doesn’t check out the breeder first is not responsible. Only the public can stop this.
