(KSL News) -- Governor Jon Huntsman is again hearing from protesters. They want the governor to call a special session to pass SB-190, a bill that would make it a felony to torture animals.

Henry, the dog who was placed in an oven over a domestic issue last year, showed up to the protest with his owner.

Rhonda Kamper, Henry's owner, explained, "We're just here to show that even though the bill didn't pass on February 28, the clock ran out, it's still strong. It's going to pass. We want it to happen."

Kamper's ex-husband, Marc Vincent, has already served a short sentence for putting Henry in the oven.
