Woman indicted in death of dog left home alone for a month
SAYREVILLE, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey woman who allegedly allowed her dog to die by leaving it alone at home for more than a month without sufficient food or water has been indicted on animal cruelty charges.
Middlesex County prosecutors say 34-year-old Nora Seay left her Pomeranian named Lady at her Sayreville home on New Year’s Eve 2018 and then didn’t return home until the first week of February. They haven’t disclosed why she was away from home.
Seay is charged with causing bodily injury resulting in the death to a living animal by failing to provide necessary care. It wasn’t known Wednesday if she has retained a lawyer.
This story has been corrected to identify the dog’s owner as Nora Seay, not Nora Shay.
