The trial continues tomorrow in the case of Trooper the pit bull who was dragged behind a truck for miles along Interstate 55. Investigators say 41-year-old Benetta Johnson allowed the pit bull to be tied to a trailer hitch before the dragging took place in November. Johnson told police that she was attempting to return the dog to her ex-husband, and that her 13-year-old son was supposed to place the dog in the bed of her ex-husband's truck. But instead, the ex unknowingly dragged the pup for several miles. Johnson is expected to testify in her own defense on Thursday. Meanwhile Trooper, who was re-named by the Humane Society, is making a remarkable recovery.
