Ensure Man Who Allegedly Shot, Hit and Abandoned Dog Faces Justice

Target: Jerrod Mahurin, Prosecuting Attorney for St. Francois County, Missouri

Goal: Ensure maximum sentence for man accused of shooting dog and assaulting him with a hammer.

A man has been accused of shooting a dog, known as Trooper. Reportedly after the shooting, Jason Hampton then went on to hit the dog over the head with a hammer. Currently, Hampton is facing felony charges for this horrific act. He was charged with animal abuse in St. Francois County. Due to this alleged horrific act, Trooper was left paralyzed and reportedly spent weeks in a ditch before anyone came to his rescue.

In Farmington, Missouri, it is legal to shoot animals if they are destroying private property. According to Hampton, he was protecting his female dog from Trooper by shooting at the dog’s feet, and somehow missed and shot him in the neck. Hampton’s alleged act of hitting Trooper over the head with a hammer is what drove the St. Francois County prosecutors to file felony charges.

According to his doctors, Trooper has a five percent chance of walking again. Beyond walking, Trooper is going to have to have daily vet visits and intensive care for the rest of his life. He has suffered enough, and it’s not over yet. Trooper deserves justice.


Dear Mr. Mahurin,

Jason Hampton allegedly shot and left a yellow lab named Trooper to die in a ditch. Trooper was reportedly left in that ditch with serious injuries for weeks before receiving help. According to a source, Jason Hampton has allegedly confessed to the crime, but after being prosecuted he reportedly later recanted this, blaming Trooper for the incident. This reported crime is horrific, and Jason Hampton deserves to be punished to the fullest extent if responsible.

Trooper deserves justice for his horrible abuse. He was reportedly shot, hit with a hammer, and left for dead, and has a very slim chance of ever walking again. We demand that Trooper receive justice, and Jason Hampton receive the maximum sentence if found guilty.

  1. No excuse to torture and try to kill an animal no matter what animal that is.
    This guy is a total Coward! Loser!
    Put him in prison and when he gets out force him to pay the veterinarian bills for this poor dog Trooper for the rest of his life!


  3. Beasts like him, don’t deserve to be alive!

  4. Dear Mr. Mahurin,
    … Jason Hampton receive the maximum sentence if found guilty.
    I don’t understand the meaning of ‘if found guilty’ — He has already confessed to the crime, didn’t he? So what are they waiting for – he should already be in jail!

  5. Non ci possono essere attenuanti per questi mostri umani!

  6. Derinda Nilsson says:

    Justice, Justice and more Justice. Let’s take a hammer to this scum bags head, shot him and leave him in a ditch. Put this scumbag in jail and yes I also agree, let him pay ALL the vet bills for the rest of Trooper’s life.

  7. Linda York says:

    This man needs to serve prison time, and then be responsible for ALL of Troopers vet care for the rest of his life. All abusers should have to pay to care for the very animal they abused. That and some prison time. It’s time to stop the slap on the wrist, and get serious with these animal abusers. These are the people who will eventually move up to torturing people! They have to be stopped. And kept away from any animal for the rest of their life.

  8. Do the same thing to this cowardly mother-fuc.er that he did to his dog. Then no medical care whatsover. Let him lay where he fell until he expires. No mercy on this earth for this piece of shit. If no one will do this to him, at least I hope he dies a very slow and excruciating death and ends up begging to die. Fuc. people like him. They have no business living on this planet.

    I dare this ugly fag named Jason Hampton to make direct face to face contact with me.I will then ensure that this POS bastard is given the penalty that he deserves.OH YES!!!!
