FBI includes animal cruelty in crime database

In a society so focused on statistics and study, it is odd that our criminal justice agency had not included animal cruelty. We have known for generations that cruelty against animals was occurring and that action was often a precursor to cruelty against other people.
The FBI has now recognized animal cruelty as a reportable crime. We encourage every police agency to report animal abuse with these new crime codes.
