The Link Between Bullying and Animal Abuse
Children, Bullying, and Animal Cruelty:
What Parents Should Know

   
Sadly, news headlines pointing to unspeakable acts of cruelty committed by children have become commonplace. Bullying and other aggressive and/or controlling behaviors are major warning signs in children for future homicidal tendencies and cruel acts to animals and humans.
In 2008, 16 year old Kendrick Morris was arrested for the heinous beating and rape of an 18 year old girl outside a library in Hillsborough County. Morris was arrested three times between 2004 and 2005 on charges of cruelty to animals, according to Florida Department of Law Enforcement Records. According to the St. Petersburg Times Morris' mother, Lisa Stevens, had a lengthy arrest record, including probation for contributing to the delinquency of a child, reduced from an original charge of child abuse.
   
The 2001 Robert Pettyjohn case is infamous in Tampa Bay history for being one of the worst animal cruelty cases to pass through the legal system. Deputies had encountered then 18 year old Pettyjohn 15 times since 1992, according to the Pinellas County Sheriff's records.
