PSYETA's long involvement in animal studies--publishing the journals Humane Innovations and Alternatives in Animal Experimentation, Society & Animals, and the Journal of Applied Animal Welfare Science; researching our video Beyond Violence: The Human-Animal Connection; Executive Director Ken Shapiro's authoring Animal Models of Human Psychology: Critique of Science, Ethics and Policy (1997); board members' many articles and presentations; and other activities--now includes the oral history project Recording Animal Advocacy (RAA).
Founded in 1998 by archivist Carmen Lee, Ph.D., a long-time animal advocate, with PSYETA Executive Director Ken Shapiro on its founding board, RAA is a non-profit organization dedicated to conducting oral history interviews and supporting the collection and preservation of archival documents and other primary sources on the history of animal protection and advocacy and the modern animal rights movement.

included this statement from PSYETA Executive Director Ken Shapiro, in the reporter's discussion of the Federal Bureau of Investigation's study linking many serial killers to animal abuse: "'Virtually every one of these kids who ends up shooting up the school yard has a history of animal abuse.'"
Also, "As to the question whether watching a violent act has a cathartic effect on viewers--or is more likely to spur them to imitate it--research has pointed toward imitation, Shapiro said."
The article observed that several recent popular movies have included acts of cruelty to animals and that those scenes were intended to add humor. A small dog flies out of a window; a dog is shoved down an apartment building's trash chute; a cat is swung around by the tail: These are a few of the many images the reporter described.
While the article did not condemn cruel scenes in so many words, most of the experts whose comments appeared along with Ken's stated that including such scenes in movies is likely to have destructive results for human beings and other-than-humans alike.

Says PSYETA Executive Director Ken Shapiro, "DDAL's generosity is sure to have important consequences for reducing violence against our fellow living beings, other-than-human and human alike. We are deeply grateful."
