North Dakota Says "No" to HSUS

NORTH DAKOTA SAYS "NO" TO HSUS

On election night, HSUS suffered a major defeat in North Dakota. In North Dakota, the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) recently spent close to $750,000 to rewrite North Dakota's animal welfare laws. Measure 5, directed as an attack on North Dakota farmers and ranchers, was defeated Tuesday, 65% no and 35% yes. In 2010, HSUS attacked North Dakota sportsmen, and they decided to come back this year with Ballot Measure 5. The local opposition group, North Dakota Animal Stewards, included North Dakota's farming and ranching community, veterinarians, and local animal welfare experts. Protect the Harvest stepped in to offer support helping to organize grassroots efforts and running an aggressive multimedia campaign with radio, television, and social media ads.

Missouri Farmers Care, the group that opposed Missouri's 2010 Prop B (written by HSUS), was instrumental in helping organize the grassroots campaign for the North Dakota Animal Stewards. Missouri Farmers Care  proved that agriculture groups working together can stand up to and defeat HSUS. Defeating the Humane Society of the United states by a margin of almost 3:1 should send the message that HSUS can be beaten.
On the same night, North Dakotan's adopted Measure 3, 67% yes and 33% no. Measure 3 changed their state constitution to create permanent protection for the "Right to Farm." Take a look at our TV ad that helped propel defeat HSUS' attempt to rewrite North Dakota's laws:
