Charges filed in animal neglect case

The Nobles County Attorney’s Office filed charges Tuesday against Joan Mary Moore of rural Reading after the remains of horses were discovered early last week on her farm.

Moore has been charged with 11 counts of felony animal neglect. Each felony count alleges that she neglected a horse and that the animal died as a result.

The maximum penalty for each felony counts is two years imprisonment or a $5,000 charge.

She has also been charged with additional counts of animal cruelty at a lesser level with regard to horses that are still alive.
