Animal Cruelty – Now a Statistic

photo-usAnimal cruelty is finally on the radar from its prior state of… irrelevance.

The Animal Welfare Institute announced today that the FBI will start reporting crimes against animals as a separate offense under its Uniform Crime Reporting Program. Previously, such crimes were lumped in with All Other Offenses.

Notwithstanding the good news, we’re reminded of a timeless quote attributed to that prolific slaughterer himself, Joseph Stalin:

“One death is a tragedy; one million is a statistic.”

Well, you’ve got to start somewhere. Even if it’s just a lowly statistic.
