C.C. Baird was America’s most notorious dog dealer. For years, he supplied the country’s research labs with thousands of animals. Some of these dogs were strays, others were suspected to be stolen pets. One fearless animal rights group was desperate to shut down Baird’s multi-million dollar operation. It finally succeeded in placing one of its agents undercover for six months inside his Arkansas kennel to videotape the hideous crimes committed against the dogs. This is the story of that harrowing investigation and its historic outcome.
