In S4E2, a pigeon is seen eating crumbs near a body at a crime scene. Later, Monk finds the same pigeon dead and says it could have been poisoned. The dead bird is shown on screen for a long while as Monk convinces his coworkers that it is the same pigeon. It is even flipped around and then taken in as evidence. In S5E12, Monk fires a rifle as a warning and accidentally kills a quail up in a tree. It is not seen being shot, only falling from the tree and its body appears in the background for a few scenes afterwards. In S5E14, a farmer’s pig is killed. It’s briefly shown alive, then later its body is found but not seen.

In a circus-centric episode, it is very briefly mentioned that the lion tamer has a gun ready backstage in case anything goes wrong during a show. I guess this may imply abuse of the lions and other animals at the circus, but none of it is shown.

However, there is an episode where the main character is almost be tortured by a dentist. The dentist talks pretty non-explicitly about what he’s going to do to him, and it never happens.

In part 1 of "Mr. Monk and the End" a character is interrogated and beaten offscreen with a laptop by Captain Stottlemeyer, a character normally portrayed as "one of the good cops". It's played for laughs and treated as justified.

There is a Christmas episode in which Natalie convinces Adrian to help solve a case for a few homeless men. Adrian is very uncomfortable with this, as they are very dirty and lack “basic” manners (ex. There is a scene where they are all eating Christmas dinner together and they are slurping, talking with their mouths full, etc.) Monk makes several comments at this, but Natalie makes sure to treat them with civility and works to convince Adrian to do the same.
