FBI turns animal cruelty into top-tier felony

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 10/01/2014 - 23:18

This file photo combo shows from left to right serial killers the Boston Strangler Albert DeSalvo, Jeffrey Dahmer, and Son of Sam killer David Berkowitz. Several studies show that most serial killers start their lives as sociopaths by torturing or killing pets. For years, the FBI has filed animal cruelty crimes with a variety of others under the heading of “other,” making them hard to find, hard to count and hard to track. That’s changing. The FBI announced this month it would make animal cruelty a Group A felony with its own category, the same way crimes like homicide, arson and assault are listed in the agency’s Uniform Crime Report Program. (AP Photo)LOS ANGELES (AP) — Young people who torture and kill animals are prone to violence against people later in life if it goes unchecked, studies have shown. A new federal category for animal cruelty crimes will help root out those pet abusers before their behavior worsens and give a boost to prosecutions, an animal welfare group says.
