According to a news article, Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson has “zero tolerance” for people who abuse animals.
While there may be many reasons underlying animal abuse, it can never be tolerated. Mental health professionals and top law enforcement officials consider the blatant disregard for life and suffering an unquestionable warning sign for possible future criminal activity. The very important truth is that barbarous acts towards animals often lead to brutality to humans. In fact, the American Psychiatric Association identifies cruelty to animals as one of the diagnostic criteria for conduct disorders, and the FBI uses reports of animal cruelty in analyzing the threat potential of suspected and known criminals.
Take Action: Nevada residents, thank Clark County District Attorney Steve Wolfson for his stance on animal cruelty. If your county’s district attorney is a strong fighter for animals, let him or her know you support their work.
