Getting away with harming animals has just gotten more difficult. A new mobile crime scene investigation (CSI) unit was launched recently by the ASPCA. It will open the organization's reach around the country to assist, hands-on, wherever law enforcement needs them to help build cases against people who need to be prosecuted for animal abuse, neglect or endangerment.
The 26-foot, fully-equipped van, will include all the regular crime scene supplies, equipment to treat animals found in life-threatening conditions, supplies to process blood and other kinds of evidence, grave detection equipment, a GPS unit and more.
This is the kind of positive news needed at the end of what was a long and cruel year for many animals.
