Over the past 25 years, researchers and professionals in a variety of human services and animal welfare disciplines have established significant correlations between animal abuse, child abuse and neglect, domestic violence, elder abuse and other forms of violence. There is small data in Spain regarding the role of companion animals within family violence. For that purpose, we conducted 38 interviews to women victims of domestic violence detected from several settings (Primary Care, Emergency Room, Mental Health Services, Law –Enforcement). 78% of pet-owning women report that their companion animals had been abused/killed by their abuser (partner or son/daughter). For 86% of the children/youngsters the companion animals were a source of comfort and love. In the 4 cases where the animal abusers were the son/daughter, they also abused their parents. A 8-year old child who is being abused by the father killed a companion fish and tried to kill a canary. He also presents enuresis, fascination for fire, self-harm and bullying and has been diagnosed with conduct disorder, Oppositional defiant disorder, Attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder, and psychopathic traits.. The three other are young women aged 19, 20 and 21 diagnosed with borderline personality disorder.

Abstract

Se evaluaron 46 casos de violencia doméstica: 89,13% de las víctimas eran mujeres y 10,87% hombres. Detectamos una coexistencia de la violencia interpersonal y maltrato a animales en un 93,33% de los casos. Encontramos una amplia gama de tipos de maltrato, siendo los más frecuentes: golpes 57,14%, muerte 19%, negligencia 23,81%, heridas por fuego 2,4%, violencia verbal (gritar / aterrorizar al animal) 66,67%, atarlos permanentemente 4,8%, 2,4% asfixia, ahogamiento 2,4% y el 7,1% herida/muerte por arma de fuego. Cuando analizamos quién era el autor del maltrato a los animales, vimos que los hombres adultos (padre) representaron el 81,4%, mujeres adultas (madre) 2,33%, 4,65%, hijo, hija 11,63% y otro familiar 2,33%. En investigaciones anteriores se encontró que algunas de las víctimas informaron espontáneamente que sus animales de compañía habían desarrollado problemas de conducta en relación con los actos violentos lo que contribuyó a la victimización y sufrimiento de la víctima por no saber cómo ayudar a sus animales. Para esta investigación, interrogamos específicamente sobre problemas de conducta (tales como fobias, agresividad, enuresis) y se encontraron en un 19,23% de los casos. En 7 casos fue necesario proporcionar un alojamiento de emergencia para los animales de compañía, gracias a nuestra colaboración con el Proyecto Freedom Paws Link (asociado al Programa SAF-T de EEUU).

Abstract

46 domestic violence cases were evaluated: 89,13% of the victims were women and 10,87% men. We found a coexistence of interpersonal violence and animal abuse in 93,33% of the cases. We found a wide range of abuse types, the most frequent being: beating 57,14%, death 19%, neglect 23,81%, burning 2,4%, verbal violence (shouting/terrorizing the animal) 66,67%, tethering 4,8%, suffocation 2,4%, drowning 2,4% and shooting 7,1 %. When we analyzed who the perpetrator of the animal abuse was, we found that adult males (father) accounted for 81,4%, adult females (mother) 2,33%, son 4,65%, daughter 11,63% and other relative 2,33%. In previous research we found that some of the victims reported spontaneously that their companion animals had developed behavioral problems in relation to violent acts and that contributed to the victim’s suffering for not knowing how to help their animals. For this research, we specifically asked about behavior problems (such as phobias, aggression, enuresis) and we found that 19,23% of the victims acknowledged that. In 7 cases, we needed to provide emergency shelter for the companion animals thanks to our cooperation with the Freedom Paws Link Project (SAF-T Program partner).

Police Agencies in Spain incorporate animal abuse in policing

Thu, Nov 20, 3:30 to 4:50pm, Marriott, Sierra F, 5th Floor

Abstract

Over the past 30 years, researchers and professionals in a variety of human services and animal welfare disciplines have established significant correlations between animal abuse, child abuse and neglect, domestic violence, elder abuse and other forms of violence. Mistreating animals is no longer seen as an isolated incident that can be ignored: it is often an indicator or predictor crime and a “red flag” warning sign that other family members in the household may not be safe. Animal abuse has also been linked with violent offending and personality disorders. Two Police Agencies in Spain, Policia Local de Polinyà and Policia Local de Castelló (UPROMA) have specifically added animal abuse to their protocols by including it as an item in risk assessment in intimate partner violence and child abuse. Animal abuse is also evaluated as a risk factor for offending. Both agencies are participating in research along with health professionals, finding a correlation of animal abuse in 93% of 46 domestic violence cases evaluated. These two agencies also offer emergency shelter for animals through a partnership with the Freedom Paws Link Project.

Cuerpos Policiales en España incorporan el maltrato a animales en policing

Abstract

En los últimos 30 años, los investigadores y profesionales especialistas en servicios a la comunidad y bienestar animal han establecido correlaciones significativas entre el maltrato a animales, la violencia doméstica, el maltrato a personas mayores y otras formas de violencia. Maltratar a los animales ya no se ve como un incidente aislado que puede ser ignorado: a menudo es un crimen indicador o predictor y una señal de alarma de que otros miembros de la familia pueden estar en riesgo. El maltrato a animales también se ha relacionado con trastornos de personalidad y delitos violentos. Dos agencias policiales en España, la Policia Local de Polinyà y la Policia Local de Castelló (UPROMA) han añadido específicamente el maltrato animal a sus protocolos incluyéndolo como un elemento en la evaluación del riesgo en la violencia de pareja y el maltrato infantil. Ambas agencias están participando en la investigación junto con profesionales de la salud, habiendo hallado una correlación entre maltrato a animales y violencia doméstica en un 93% de los casos evaluados. Estas dos agencias también ofrecen acogida de emergencia para los animales a través de su colaboración con el Programa Freedom Paws Link.
