The scenes of crime are the locations at which a criminal act has taken place (Del Carmen 2010). More specifically, criminal acts involving animals may take place at a variety of locations that are relative to a specific type of animal. Some criminal acts involving domesticated animals may be located at the owner’s residence or a common location where the animal is sheltered. Alternatively, criminal acts involving wild animals may include more remote locations that incorporate the animal’s natural habitat. Some locations may be much more obvious than others, but while assessing the various locations at which a criminal act took place it is important to consider that there can be multiple locations, or crime scenes, that need to be identified.
