Presented by Dr. Randy Lockwood (Sr. Vice President of Forensic Sciences and Anti-Cruelty Projects, ASPCA)
Review the history of efforts to fight animal abuse and neglect in America from the early days of animal protection to today. The last decade has seen a dramatic improvement in laws protecting animals and the tools available to investigate and prosecute such crimes. There has also been increased attention to animals as victims of crimes, and the need to not only document the impact of abuse and neglect on animal victims but to also make efforts to undo the damage that may have been done.
We will review current trends in animal law, the role of professionals and individuals in applying those laws, and the public’s role in continuing to strengthen and enforce animal protection.
This webinar is part of the National Center for Prosecution of Animal Abuse/ASPCA webinar series.
