Investigating and prosecuting cases of animal cruelty can be complex due to the fact that the victim is a living, sentient being and an extended team of qualified people is needed.
There are various organizations throughout the United States that offer training in animal cruelty, animal forensics, crime scene investigation and evidence collection, etc.
A multi-disciplinary approach
Animal Folks believes in a multi-disciplinary approach to training. All authorities and stakeholders, including sheriff offices, police departments, prosecutors, judges, veterinarians, humane agents, animal control officers and others who assist in the enforcement of animal law, required training.
Animal Folks is creating and organizing training targeted to the groups above. To view training and materials for Minnesota veterinarians, go to: Training - Veterinarians
