North Dakota is one of only two states that punishes even the most extreme forms of animal cruelty as a mere misdemeanor.

This measure would also give judges the additional option of requiring that animal abusers receive psychological counseling and prohibiting them from owning a dog, cat, or horse for up to five years.
