In the past several years, there have been significant changes in law pertaining to cruelty toward non-human animals. While prosecutors have more options available to them today than in the past, research has failed to examine prosecutors' actions in cases involving animal cruelty. This research relies primarily on interviews with prosecuting attorneys to understand these types of cases. It explores prosecutors' thoughts on and experiences with animal cruelty cases and provides information on the handling of these cases by the criminal justice system.
