(US/nd) Measure 5 supporters rally

Pet owners rallied with their four-footed friends at Souris Valley Animal Shelter Wednesday to encourage passage of a tougher law for animal cruelty.

Measure 5 on the Nov. 6 ballot would establish felony penalties for extreme cruelty to dogs, cats and horses.

"The debate is starting to heat up," said Karen Thunshelle of Minot, who chaired the petition drive for the measure. The measure has organized opposition from North Dakota Animal Stewards, and Thunshelle said supporters are hoping that Wednesday's rally and other activities will get the word out and clear up what she called misinformation that is circulating.
