Re.:  Animal cruelty indictment


Monica Thors (DOB 5/13/60), of Mullica Hill NJ, has been indicted by a Gloucester County grand jury on nine counts of animal cruelty resulting from the alleged mistreatment of horses and a goat in 2013 and 2014.


The indictment returned 5/24/15 contains four counts of third-degree animal cruelty (N.J.S.A. 4:22-17c (2) ) said to have resulted in the death of four horses, “specifically,  by failing to provide the necessary care as directed by veterinarians to address several health issues.”  The five remaining counts are fourth-degree charges that accuse Thors of causing serious bodily injury, also by failure to provide care, to four horses and a goat.


Thors is scheduled for a pre-arraignment interview in the Superior Court’s Criminal Case Management offices on 7/8/15.  She is represented by attorney Larye N. Radley of the Gloucester County Public Defender’s office.
