There comes a time in every investigator’s career that cats and dogs are part of a case, whether centrally, as seen in situations of animal cruelty, or peripherally, as often seen in domestic violence calls. In many of these situations, you may need to document the animals’ condition without the assistance of a veterinarian or experienced humane law enforcement officer. Do you know what you are looking for, and what to put on the record? This webinar will take you through the basic logistics of documenting an animal’s condition- nose to tail- including physical and behavioral characteristics, how to make it part of the record so it holds up in court, and preserving your case when the evidence is alive.
