A recent federal inspection report revealed new violations at a beagle breeding facility in Cumberland.

A March 8 report from the US Department of Agriculture found five additional violations – all of which were repeat violations.

This included the continued failure to provide adequate veterinary care and unsafe conditions – which resulted in the dogs being stuck in the floor of the facility.

Virginia Senators Mark Warner and Tim Kaine are now asking the USDA to suspend the breeding facility’s license.

Sunny and dry

Today will be a sunny and dry day, but we can expect rain on Tuesday evening and another rainy spell on Thursday.

The lows will be in the mid-30s and the highs in the mid-60s.
