New Jersey SPCA Hires Forensic Veterinarian to Fight Animal Abuse

In what we hope will be an inspiration for a new CSI-like TV series, the New Jersey Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals just hired their very first forensic veterinarian. That’s right. A vet who is there to fight on the side of the furry, feathered and scaled.

Dr. Ernest Rogers is joining the NJSPCA to investigate and solve crimes against animals. And that’s no easy task. Such offenses are often hard to prove, in large part because the victims have no voice and no way to serve as an eyewitness to their own crime. That’s why a forensic vet will be such an asset.

Animal advocates in NJ know that their state needs all the help it can get when it comes to animal cruelty. According to the Animal Legal Defense Fund, the Garden State is one of the worst for animal protection laws. It comes in at number 48 in the very bottom tier.

The SPCA thanks shows like Animal Planet’s “Animal Cops” that have raised the profile of animal abuse cases for the new staffing addition.

We hope other states will follow New Jersey’s great example and put more resources into fighting animal crimes. And if it happens to inspire a new show, we think we know just the actress to play the lead.

    I would love to see this made into a TV series and all the scumbags will be seen by thousands. Also hope the courts take this serious and prosecute to the fullest extent.

Stop calling vegan food “cruelty-free”

Many vegans proudly proclaim that their food is “cruelty-free” as though issues of justice and injustice begin and end with our use of nonhuman animals.
