Animal welfare is very linked to human welfare. Not just the comradeship and fun that our pets bring to us, but also the opposite: sometimes abusers of animals also are abusers of other people. This presentation will explore the link between animal cruelty and domestic abuse and psychopathic human behavior. As well, it will describe the many challenges faced in the veterinary CSI world. Content of this program may not be suitable for all audiences, participant discretion is advised.

“I will make the link between animal cruelty and domestic abuse and psychopathic human behavior. I will also emphasize various challenges faced in the veterinary CSI world,” says Wenzlow.
