ND voters reject animal cruelty measure

Publication/Event date: 2012-11-07
Publication name: In Forum
URL for more info: http://www.inforum.com/event/article/id/379699/group/News/
Summary:
North Dakota voters handily rejected a measure Tuesday that would have created a felony penalty for malicious cruelty to a dog, cat or horse, but both sides in the contentious struggle vowed to seek changes in state animal cruelty laws at the 2013 Legislature.

With 318 precincts reporting out of 426, the “no” vote led, 132,214 to 66,354 “yes” votes, or 67 percent “no” to 33 percent “yes.” The margin stayed steady throughout the night and reflected decisive votes against the measure in Ramsey, Cavalier and other area counties. The measure also trailed in Grand Forks County but by a slimmer margin, 53 percent to 47 percent with 24 of 27 precincts reporting.

Animals in Staten Island need YOUR help

Two weeks ago, Superstorm Sandy swept through the East Coast, affecting numerous states. My heart goes out to all individuals who suffered as a result, in particular CAPS' members and protesters in the state of New York. While families are struggling to get back on their feet, many animals are also dealing with the storm's aftermath. Greatly affected are feral cats whose shelters were destroyed by the heavy rains and wind. Please donate to theStaten Island Hope Animal Rescue, a wonderful group that has been working non-stop to help companion animals amidst this period of restoration. CAPS already sent them a check this week, will you?  If you live in the area, please drop off cat food, dog food, and/or cat litter at theSusan E. Wagner High School which is serving as a shelter for people and animals displaced by the storm. Please check the links below to help our four-legged friends in need.

Sincerely,
 signature1
Deborah Howard
CAPS President
