WICHITA, Kan. - A new report cites "problem puppy mills" across the country - and counts Kansas as having the second-highest number of them.

The report comes from the Humane Society of the U.S. It focuses on 101 of the worst "puppy mills." Missouri was cited for 22 of them. Kansas has 13 - including one which reportedly has 60 pages of USDA violations.

The report says problem mills are scattered around the state. In KAKEland, they're located in Chapman, El Dorado, Rush Center, St. Francis and Wilson.

Several kennels were cited by the Humane Society for leaving animals outside in below-freezing conditions this past winter.
