Why abusive husbands kick dogs but angry neighbors poison them
from MSU Today
Laura Reese, professor of political science and director of the Global Urban Studies Program at Michigan State University, writes, "Volunteering with animal rescue and shelter organizations in Detroit brought me face to face with many manifestations of animal cruelty: dogs left outside and frozen in their yards; dogs with chain link collars embedded in their necks; cats that had gaping wounds full of maggots as the result of being doused with acid; and dogs used for dog fighting. I never forgot these sights. They led me, an urban studies researcher, to question the potential causes of animal cruelty and what might be done about it from a public policy standpoint."
