2012 Year in Review: Crimes against animals
"OP" lost the use of his back legs after his owner Ron Jackson allegedly shot him 12 times, choked him with an electrical cord and threw him in a dumpster. A city employee discovered the abused dog in September and notified the Stray Rescue of St. Louis, which worked with the mayor's Animal Cruelty Task Force to identify a suspect and ultimately make an arrest on Nov. 19, 2012. OP reportedly remains in the care of the founder of Stray Rescue of St. Louis, and with the help of a donated, custom-built cart he can now walk.
