MONROE - After the seizure of 55 live cats and five dead ones from a Monroe residence Monday, law enforcement is looking into instating new ordinances to better combat the problem of animal hoarding. After the home of 78-year-old Monroe resident Delores Marti was condemned due to dangerously poor sanitation, Monroe Police Chief Fred Kelley said he realized that tickets alone cannot solve this problem. Marti had been involved in three other animal hoarding incidents, once in October 2009, once in June 2012 and again in August 2013.
