DV and Violence Against Pets
Domestic violence is in fact the abuse of power over the less dominant partner by the one who is seeking to control the other. It occurs when a partner exploits any relationship by means of pressurising or exercising power against the other partner. Usually domestic abuse is physical, but sometimes it may appear in some indirect form involving threatening and controlling behaviors of the partner, irritating the partner by causing harm to personal property or abusing the family pet. A family pet is always a very powerful tool that many abusers use to harass and coerce the victim.
