Facing felony charges of Animal Neglect and Cruelty in the case of the State of North Dakota vs Gerald Dassinger, Mr. Dassinger, on the day of trial, chose to avoid the very real possibility of receiving 4 Felony Animal Cruelty charges, and pled guilty to 6 Class A Misdemeanor charges of Animal Neglect. 

Sentencing has been delayed for 60 days until a Pre-Sentence Investigation and Risk Assessment of Mr. Dassinger's remaining horses and cattle can be performed by the State Veterinarian, Dr. Susan Keller, DVM. 

This petition is intended to encourage Dr. Keller, DVM, to perform the investigation and risk assessment as soon as possible. Given the winter weather conditions and the drought from last summer, we believe Mr. Dassinger's animals are still at risk of neglect. The animals under Mr. Dassinger's "care" have been neglected the basic rights of adequate food, water, shelter, and vet care for many years. He has continually proven that he lacks the financial and functional responsibility to care for such a huge herd of cattle (20+) and horses (100+).
