A St. Pete man was jailed after deputies say he allowed his dog to become emaciated.
Jason Leigh Aldridge faces a felony animal cruelty charge. Investigators say they found his 17-year-old shepherd mix 'Rocky' wandering in the Caroline Trailer Court off Haines Road on Saturday -- malnourished, emaciated, and covered in fleas.
During the subsequent investigation, deputies say they found Rocky had been living in deplorable conditions.
Pinellas County Animal Services took possession of the dog, who weighed only 47 pounds.
Aldridge, 38, was later released on $5,000 bond.
