Opponents of a bill that would require the sale of dogs and cats only from animal control facilities or shelters say they have polling that shows Illinois residents don’t like the idea. The poll by National Research Inc. and commissioned by Furry Babies, a majority woman-owned pet store, says 53 percent of residents oppose HB 1711. Here are the cross tabs. Opponents say the measure is anti-business and removes existing consumer protections. The poll was conducted May 13-16 and surveyed 600 residents and has a margin of error of plus/minus 4 percent, according to the info sheet (which doesn’t explain how the questions were asked).
