TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) - It may take more legal action to get a controversial dog breeding business shut down.
It's a battle that has been going on for more than a year since unsanitary conditions were found at Sanders Border Collies in the summer of 2012.
Tippecanoe County Building Inspector Ken Brown visited the operation Tuesday in Clarks Hill today run by Thurman Randy Sanders. Brown was told 28 dogs were still on the property, a violation of the county zoning ordinance.
You may remember the county's Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA) ruled this spring that Sanders has been operating illegally since 1981 when a new barn was built. His appeal of the decision was dismissed Friday after he didn't show up for a scheduling conference.
BZA attorney Jay Seeger told News 18 Tuesday he will soon file a motion in court to enforce compliance.
