Animal abuse inculcates social deviance

"THE relentless torture of a pet cat that was shot 27 times at point-blank range in the head and neck with an air rifle has outraged animal welfare authorities." [© Cairns Post, 2-Mar-09]

Clearly, the self-confessed wildlife serial killer finds his behaviour with slaughtering kangaroos acceptable to the extent he is educating his son in the same practices from an early age. It is likely he himself learnt this attitude and behavior from his own father. But animal abuse is not normal behaviour. It is immoral and unacceptable in civil society.

Animal abusers are five times more likely to commit violent crimes against people...than are individuals without a history of animal abuse.
