This chapter explores the links between non-human animal abuse and interpersonal violence with a specific focus on the extent to which harm caused to wildlife may be an indicator of violent tendencies and a predictor of future violence. Experts estimate that from 48 percent to 71 percent of battered women have pets who also have been abused or killed and the link between domestic animal abuse and human violence is widely recognised by scholars and law enforcement professionals. This chapter focuses on the violence inherent in hunting and poaching. The chapter speculates as to the link concerning violence towards wildlife and the extent to which wild animal abuse can indicate a propensity or inclination towards other forms of violence.

Keywords:   Non-human animal abuse, Violence, Domestic violence, Hunting, Poaching
