BAKERSFIELD, Calif. — Two teenagers accused of feeding a live cat to two dogs, videotaping the attack and posting it online have been arrested in central California 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 arrested a 15-year-old and a 17-year-old last week. Both teens were booked into Juvenile Hall.
