This hands-on workshop will build on the information presented during the Level I and Level II workshops, by having participants use the skills and techniques they learned in the classroom in a real-life setting. Forget-me-Not Farm will serve as the host for a mock “crime scene” involving large animals. Participants will have the opportunity to:

  • Practice their interview techniques, report-writing and evidence gathering skills in a group setting;
  • Become more comfortable with handling equines by approaching and leading live animals;
  • Use body scoring techniques in order to assist in determining animal health.

Participants must bring with them their Animal Cruelty Investigation manual.  

Please Note: Persons who currently own the "Animal Cruelty Investigation Manual”, 1st or 2nd or 3rd edition, and are interested in purchasing the newly released 4th edition of this manual... please indicate so when registering.  Manual cost is $35.00.
