NJSPCA adds first ever forensic veterinarian

    The position “forensic veterinarian” may seem like something you might see on a primetime television show, but the NJSPCA will tell you otherwise, after adding the position to its staff.

    The new addition will help the group to investigate animal abuses and solve crimes against animals.
