A spokesman for the Humane Society of the United States says voters should support the controversial measure five ballot initiative regardless of what groups are behind it.

Some are worried that the animal abuse measure is supported by the Washington DC based group. Spokesman Dale Bartlett says 15,000 North Dakotans belong to the group and that the measure has plenty of support from state residents. Bartlett urges voters to vote solely based on the content of the measure. He says it could possibly lead to a more comprehensive law. Measure Five would make it a felony to commit malicious abuse against a dog, cat or horse.
