Free presentation in Akron to detail animal cruelty cases

It may be a bit of a hike out to Akron Public Library, but if you're wondering how an animal cruelty case unfolds, or what happens after a concerned call is reported - well here's your chance to find out.

Join the Happy Trails Farm Animal Sanctuary crew at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 14th, for a start-to-finish look at two familiar animal abuse cases - a livestock case in Medina County and a horse abuse case in Portage County.

The free, unique presentation will include detailed descriptions of investigations, court proceedings, trials, final outcomes and what the Ohio Revised Code laws give area humane officers to work with.

How can you help get the laws changed? They'll take a look at that, too.

Law students, law enforcement officers, animal lovers and anyone else looking to have their eyes opened are especially encouraged to attend. Psychology students may also take special interest in a discussion of the hoarder mentality and the link between domestic violence, child abuse and criminal behavior.
