Statement from Sen. Bill Rabon

Earlier today, I reached out to
Governor Pat McCrory, First Lady Ann McCrory, House Speaker Thom Tillis and
House Minority Leader Larry Hall to apologize for comments I made during what I
was led to believe was an off-the-record conversation about the prospects for a
puppy mill bill in the upcoming legislative session. While I spoke out of
frustration in the heat of the moment, it does not excuse what I said or how I
said it. My comments were both inappropriate and offensive, and I am sincerely
sorry.

As a veterinarian, my life's work
has been caring for pets and helping them lead happy, healthy lives. I will
continue to work to protect the welfare of dogs and make sure they are treated
humanely.”
