BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (AP) — Two teenagers who allegedly fed a live cat to two dogs, videotaped the attack and posted it online have been arrested in Kern County on suspicion of cruelty to an animal.
The Bakersfield Californian reports that while the incident apparently occurred over the summer, Animal Control wasn’t contacted until Dec. 4 after a person reported receiving the graphic video on a social networking site.
Sheriff’s deputies said the video appeared to show two large dogs being fed a live cat while voices in the background encouraged the dogs to attack.
Detectives last week arrested a 15-year-old and a 17-year-old. Both teens were booked into Juvenile Hall.
The investigation is continuing.
