[APD] OT: license

Well as it's the sellers who would get their license removed, I guess they 
enforce it.

Another part of the act also says you can't mutilate pets. So no dogs with 
ears or tails cut off, etc.. So what do the Breeders do? They get this done 
outside the UK as importing mutilated pets is not illegal. I hear that this 
loophole is suppose to be removed sometime.
