    In domestic violence scenarios, animals frequently suffer abuse alongside the human victims.  This presentation addresses the complexities that can arise from cases in which a domestic violence victim is also the primary witness to the crime of companion animal abuse; including the challenging cases that appear to rely on one person’s word against the other person’s. The presentation will utilize a hypothetical to illustrate a common scenario involving both domestic violence and cruelty to animals, and then address specific common issues that arise for the law enforcement, prosecutors, and veterinarians involved.
