Puppy Recovering After Allegedly Being Beaten by Owner


It's being called one of the worst cases of animal cruelty ever in Pulaski County.

Police arrested 30-year-old Ronald Turner Monday morning, for beating, choking, and nearly killing an 8-month-old puppy. Police say a neighbor caught the whole thing on tape.

Investigators say the tape shows Turner striking, choking, and slamming the dog against the ground. At one point, police also claim Turner rolled a dog house on top of the puppy.

The puppy is a Labrador. He was taken from the home by Pulaski County Animal Control, and is now recovering. Turner was arrested and charged with misdemeanor animal cruelty.

If convicted, he could receive up to a year in jail.
