HSUS-Backed Measure before North Dakota Voters


As the election gets into full swing on Tuesday, North Dakota voters will be facing one ballot measure that’s got the interest of several of the state’s agricultural groups peaked.  The initiative, which is “Measure 5” on the ballot (read official language here), makes it a class C felony to maliciously and intentionally hurt a dog, cat, or horse in the state. 


The measure reportedly has ties back to the Humane Society of the U.S.  Working for it in the state of South Dakota is the group “North Dakotans to Stop Animal Cruelty.”  In opposition of the measure is the group “North Dakota Animal Stewards.”


The following video looks deeper into the issues surrounding this measure.
