(KSL News) A bill making animal torture a felony will NOT be heard in a special session of the legislature.

Those backing the bill, known as Henry's Law for a dog who survived being put in an oven, had hoped Governor Huntsman would call the session for later this month.

However, a spokesman for the governor says there is no plan to do that.

The bill was discussed in the regular session in January but did not get to the floor of either house before time ran out.
