I certainly hope that no one gets burglarized, but I thought this information is strange enough that it is worth mentioning. To get an honest answer from a person who has chosen this line of work is a catch 22 situation. No pun intended with catch.
Home Burglar Survey
A survey of home burglars’ work preferences published in Whittle Communications’ Special Report magazine revealed that 32% like to browse through family photographs while on the job, 27% like to raid the refrigerator, and 7% watch TV.
Seventy percent of the 191 imprisoned burglars reported they like to limit their jobs to a 20 minute maximum, 17% wondered what their victims were like and 59% said a dog in the home was the most effective burglary deterrent.
Moral of the story: Get a Dog.
