Death Investigation Series:Postmortem Injuries from Animals

Analyze How Postmortem Injuries Can Affect Death Investigations

  Enroll in Course

Injuries from animals can be quite common and animal scavenging is considered one of the most significant causes of postmortem injuries. These injuries can be mistaken for blunt force trauma, stab wounds, or gunshot wounds.

Although injuries can come from different types of animals, such as dogs, bears, cats, and alligators, this presentation will focus upon injuries from rodents (mice and rats).

So why take this course?

Forensic experience requires specialized training and to become a forensic professional this is the VERY thing you need--specialized training.

The course provides training in:

understanding the challenges in determining postmortem lesions from those of non-animal wounds

introduce related terminology

review clawing and gnawing patterns

observe the patterns of chewing/biting marks associated with mice and rats

review case studies involving mice and rats

observe tissue patterns from rodent activity

Taking this course will increase your investigative skills and provide professional proof (especially for forensic students) needed when applying to forensic positions.

This course is part of our Death Investigation Series.
