"If he saw a stray cat he would become angry and shoot the stray cat. He hit some of the cats, and probably killed some of the cats," Cornell said. Lee Boyd Malvo (D.C.

INF FROM MEETING OF AMERICAN HUMAN SOCIETY AND CONGRESS 110 MARCH 13 2008


Whereas each year, defenseless companion animals face the grim reality that they will be victims of domestic abuse;


Whereas in a nationwide study, more than 71 percent of battered women reported that their abusers harmed, killed, or threatened their pets, and more than 75  percent of those incidents occurred in the presence of the women or their children;


Whereas the American Veterinary Medical Association estimates that 98 percent of Americans consider pets to be companions or members of the family, and that pets live most frequently in homes with children;


Whereas abusers kill, harm, or threaten children%u2019s pets to force the children to remain silent about sexual abuse;


Whereas women and children remain in violent households out of fear that their abusers will harm their pets if they  leave;


Whereas children who grow up in an environment of animal abuse live in constant fear that a beloved family member will be harmed, and may even allow themselves to be abused to save their pets from harm;


Whereas young children growing up in an environment of abuse may become desensitized to the inhumane treatment of animals, and research indicates that children exposed to domestic violence are nearly 3 times more likely to treat animals with cruelty than children who are not exposed to such violence;

WE THE UNDERSIGNED ARE ASKING CONGRESS TO ACT IN THE BEST INTEREST  OF ANIMALS AND HUMANS.  WE NEED STRONGER LAWS TO PROTECT ANIMALS AND OUR COMMUNITIES. WE THE PEOPLE ARE WELL AWARE OF THE LINK BETWEEN ANIMALS  AND HUMANS.
