Human-animal relationships are far from fading in importance or reducing in number, despite progressive urbanization and industrialization. With increasing protection for animals being sought by legislation around the world and the recognition of important connections in our interactions with animals and with each other, the need for veterinary forensics will become increasingly necessary. This chapter discusses the historical context; towards enlightenment and legislation; the status of animals; moral considerations; human attitudes; the range of relationships; positive human-animal relationships; animal cruelty; family violence and the link; and hoarding and bestiality.
