The Relationship of Animal Abuse to Violence and Other Forms of Antisocial Behavior.
Arluke, Arnold; Levin, Jack; Luke, Carter; Ascione, Frank
Journal of Interpersonal Violence, v14 n9 p963-75 Sep 1999
Criminal records of 153 animal abusers and 153 control participants were tracked and compared. Animal abusers were more likely to commit property offenses, drug offenses, and public disorder offenses. Thus, results show an association between animal abuse and a variety of antisocial behavior, but not violence alone. Implications of these findings are discussed. (Author/MKA)
