Humane society seeks abuser of nearly strangled puppy in Missouri

See also

On Tuesday, the Humane Society of Missouri (HSMO) announced their quest to find the person responsible for the abuse of a Labrador retriever mix puppy dubbed "Wilson."

On May 15, the five-month-old puppy was found in the back yard of a north St. Louis home. The shelter's animal cruelty task force noted that the pup's face was "grotesquely swollen" because he had a bungee cord wrapped tightly around his neck.

Veterinarians at the Humane Society's headquarters were able to remove the bungee cord. Shortly after the pup was rescued, Dr. Mark Wright, Director of Shelter Medicine for HSMO, stated:

“We are monitoring him closely and giving him time to stabilize before we perform further examinations. He is resting comfortably and we are hopeful he will make a full recovery.”

The search for Wilson's abuser is still underway. Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the Humane Society of Missouri’s Animal Cruelty Hotline at 314-647-4400.
