Arrests for bestiality are on the rise. If it hasn’t occurred in your jurisdiction yet, it likely will at some point. Research indicates that 34% of animal sex abusers also sexually offend against children, and another 34% collect child pornography. Bestiality has also been linked to assault, domestic violence, drugs, and property crimes. This webinar will show you what to look for when bestiality is suspected; where to find the information you need without wasting any time, and how to work with veterinarians and other professionals to obtain a successful conviction.
