Letter: Measure 5 does more harm than good

I have been a veterinarian for more than 40 years, and animal welfare is an important issue to me. After examining Measure 5 and researching its intended and unintended consequences, I have decided that it will do more harm than good, and I will vote “no” on it.

A more comprehensive legislative measure has broad support from many animal-related groups, including the North Dakota Veterinary Medical Association, the North Dakota Veterinary Technicians Association and the North Dakota Stockmen’s Association, as well as a growing number of legislators. For the sake of the animals, I urge a “no” vote on Measure 5.
