> There’s an undeniable link between animal abuse and violence against women. A survey of women in domestic violence shelters found that 71 percent had partners who had abused or threatened to abuse companion animals, and recent studies show that slaughterhouse work can lead to domestic violence, social withdrawal, anxiety, drug and alcohol abuse, and PTSD.


@Alda It's not surprising to me that people who are cruel to animals might be cruel to people as well. Note that "people" doesn't imply any gender. Neither on the side of the victim nor perpetrator.
