Woman circulating petition to change state’s cruelty law

Published 09/10/2009, The Daily Republic

A Mitchell woman is circulating an informal petition, calling for the state’s animal cruelty law penalty to be changed from a misdemeanor to a felony.
April Boyd, office manager at local veterinarian Dr. Kevin Hubbert’s office, said a recent incident — in which a pit bull puppy allegedly had its ears cut off with scissors by its owner — is the impetus for the petition. She is circulating the petition both in person and online.
