Milwaukee - Local prosecutors are launching a new campaign designed to put a stop to it to animal abuse and domestic violence.

Milwaukee County District Attorney John Chisolm said animal abuse is also linked to domestic violence. In fact, the Association of Prosecuting Attorneys found 76 percent of animal abusers also abuse a member of their family.

The Spot Abuse Campaign was launched Thursday morning.
