I have read many of the same studies. The study of phenomenon of torture of animals leading to torture and murder of people goes back to Victorian times. After wide acceptance, it was debunked in the 1900s as being unrelated, but now is again considered to be true fairly often. The study in popular, rather than academic, circles goes by the name “The Link”. If you are interested, looking this up online might provide some additional interesting reading, if somewhat disturbing.

Animals do seem to have a sense of evil, but I have seen a sociopath that would gladly kill a person over nothing enjoy the company of cats, and they enjoyed his. Sort of like the Bird Man of Alcatraz thing. So you never know for sure, but most psychologists and sociologists do feel that there is a ‘link’ between early animal abuse and adult violent criminal behavior.
