Animal Abuse Doesn’t Just Hurt the Dog: Lawyers at Console & Hollawell Look into the Public Safety Threat Posed by Animal Cruelty
Date:3/26/2013

Marlton, NJ (PRWEB) March 26, 2013

Research has long linked animal cruelty to violence against humans, according to the Humane Society, yet more than 1,000 such acts of abuse are discovered each year in the United States.

The surprisingly widespread problem means that animals aren’t the only ones in danger. Public outrage at acts of animal cruelty has continued to grow with recent accusations that Wildlife Services, a division of the United States government funded by tax dollars, engages in cruel practices to kill animals that are considered threats to livestock. Having practiced personal injury law for nearly 20 years, Richard P. Console, Jr., of Console & Hollawell has a unique perspective that allows him to see how animal cruelty is not only an animal rights issue, but a threat to public safety.

“As shocking and tragic as animal cruelty is, there are plenty of reasons for us as a society to put an end to this violence – some of which have as much to do with protecting our own families as with animal welfare,” Console said. “When we talk about animal cruelty, we’re talking about an instance of violence where the perpetrator often stands to gain nothing. The violence is its own reward. There is no greater indicator of a lack of empathy and conscience than senseless violence against a helpless victim, regardless of whether that victim is human or animal in nature.”

Console examines the list of violent offenses associated with animal abuse in his latest article, “Catching the Red Flags: How the Animal Cruelty Legacy Impacts Public Safety.” Console discusses the increasingly popular initiative calling for the establishment of a national database to track animal abusers.
