Why didn't puppy supporters show concern for safety of humans?

The recent meeting of the Branford Rules and Ordinances Committee concerning the request for an ordinance banning the sale of pets from puppy mills has certainly been in the news. It is interesting that more than 200 people showed up at the committee meeting on July 2, but not one was present at the full Representative Town Meeting on July 10 for the official vote on the committee’s recommendation. There appears to be lack of knowledge of how an ordinance is voted in. No excuses - if you want to change the rules, you are responsible for learning the process.
So many people turned out for the July 2nd meeting that the fire marshal ordered the number of attendees be reduced to comply with the capacity code of the room. It is ironic that many supporting the safety and well-being of animals left only under the threat of the meeting being called off, not out of concern for the safety and well-being of those present. It is heartwarming to see how much we love our pets; I wish our love of fellow man was as evident.
