Measure 5: A solution or a problem

10/17/12 (Wed)

Advocates for Measure 5 say it is time for North Dakota law to reflect its values toward animals, but local veterinarians and proponents say the proposal is incomplete and could cause more problems than solutions.
Measure 5 would make it a Class C felony to maliciously and intentionally harm a living dog, cat or horse. This would include a person who intentionally burns, poisons, crushes, suffocates, impales, drowns, blinds, skins, bludgeons to death, drags to death, disembowels or dismembers those animals.
