Criminology is the scientific study of crime, criminal behavior and law enforcement. Criminology is not only concerned with the causes and preventions of crime but the social impacts and reactions to crime, as well as the criminals themselves.
An act or the commission of an act that is forbidden or the omission of a duty that is commanded by a public law and that makes the offender liable to punishment by that law; especially: a gross violation of law (Merriam-Webster, 2006).
Criminologists often study what, exactly; goes on in the criminal's mind to make him or her decide to act in a criminal manner. This can be very helpful as law enforcement pursues an investigation. The study of violence against nonhuman animals largely has been ignored in the realm of criminological inquiry. Despite the prevalence and pervasiveness of such criminality in society (HSUS, 2001; Kellert & Felthous, 1985) and the considerable violence and suffering involved, little attention has been given to the etiology of violence against animals and animal cruelty. However, animal cruelty is beginning to be acknowledged by both the criminal justice system (Frasch, et al., 1999; Sauder, 2000; Schlueter, 1999; Tischler, 1999) and criminologists (Agnew 1998; Beirne 1995; 1999).
Animal Cruelty and Violent Crime:
There is a link between animal abuse and psychologically- impaired and/or mentally disturbed people (Pet-Abuse.com, 2006a). According to Pet-Abuse.com (2006a), studies in criminology, psychology, and sociology have shown that aggressive offenders, including serial killers, usually committed or have a history of committing animal abuse during their childhood and adolescent years. Animal cruelty is considered as one of the diagnostic criteria of conduct disorder by American Psychiatric Association (Pet-Abuse.com, 2006a). According to the 2003 report of 1,373 animal cruelty cases conducted by HSUS (2006a), 6% of cases included information on prior criminal records for the animal cruelty perpetrator. Prior offenses included (HSUS, 2006a): Animal cruelty and neglect, Illegal drug possession, Firearms violations, Domestic violence, Burglary, Assault, Kidnapping, Rape and Incest.
Children Who Are Cruel to Animals:
According to Tapia (1971), the children who are cruel to animals suffer from hyperactivity, short attention span, irritability, temper, destructiveness, and brain damage leading to poor impulse control. Like enuresis and resetting, animal cruelty indicates one more sign of impulsive character development (Felthous, 1980)
