Description

****This class formerly called Animal Cruelty Investigation Level IV****

To attend this class: Space is limited… registrations are limited to qualified humane agents sponsored by their municipality or police department and law enforcement officers. You must have attended a prior workshop on investigating animal cruelty in Vermont, sponsored by the Vermont Humane Federation’s Animal Cruelty Response Coalition. Attendance of the Vermont Police Academy’s “Introduction to Animal Welfare Investigations – Level I” (being offered September 6, 2017) meets this requirement.

This introductory and hands-on workshop will focus on some of the most common farm animals you might see during the course of an animal cruelty investigation. Topics to be covered will include:

  • The proper handling and housing of common farm animals;
  • Best management practices;
  • Body condition scoring (BCS), and
  • Locomotion of farm animals

In the morning there will be classroom time to learn basic skills and techniques on how to handle and work around cows, chickens, sheep and swine. You will then be provided an opportunity to apply these newly learned skills with the animals on the farm. Full participation is expected.

Participants should be prepared to spend most of the day outside in any type of weather. Work/muck boots are recommended.

**Training is being held at the Shelburne Farms’ “Coach Barn” (1611 Harbor Road, Shelburne, VT (802) 985-8686). At the gate house of Shelburne Farms, tell the attendant that you are attending this training. Parking is behind the Farm Barn. Lunch will be provided.
