FBI to begin tracking animal cruelty cases in Ohio

05/01/2015

Via WTDN:

Animal cruelty has become such a problem for law enforcement the FBI is taking action.

Beginning in January of 2016 the FBI will track animal cruelty cases in Ohio and the nation.

Before now, animal abuse fell under an ‘other’ category lumped together with other less serious crimes, said Mark Kumpf with the Montgomery County Animal Resource Center.

The FBI already has national databases for crimes like murder and rape.  Now, law enforcement will track animal cruelty as well.

“This is the biggest change out of the FBI. This is a giant leap forward and people in law enforcement are hitting the ground running,” said Kumpf.

Local investigators will upload each cruelty case to the database. The cases will be divided into four categories: animal neglect, torture, organized abuse, like dog fighting rings and animal sex abuse.

The FBI will use the data to find patterns and identify ways to prevent animal cruelty.

“If someone is going to beat a dog and torture a dog, their not that far from doing that to a human,” said Marcia Doncaster, Miami County dog warden.
