SD Officials Propose Compromise Animal Cruelty Law

SD Officials Propose Compromise Animal Cruelty Law
PIERRE, SD -

State officials will ask the South Dakota Legislature to approve an animal cruelty measure intended to satisfy animal welfare organizations and livestock producers.

State Veterinarian Dustin Oedekoven says the measure would make it a felony to commit certain acts of malicious, intentional torture and mutilation against animals. It also would clarify that standard accepted livestock-raising practices are not mistreatment.

Oedekoven says similar bills have been rejected in past years because of conflicts with existing livestock laws. He says representatives of livestock groups and animal welfare organizations worked in the past year to find language acceptable to all.

Mike Held of the South Dakota Farm Bureau says livestock organizations want to find a solution because they are tired of battling over the issue year after year.
