most of the violations are for selling more than 200 animals to pet stores without a USDA license. For each of those animals they could fine the breeders up to $10,000.

They are obviously a crappy breeder but the part USDA cares about is no license.
Well now we know it's $10,000 fine per animal sold without a license. Maybe more people will take it seriously knowing their money is at stake and not just animal lives.
