HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (AP) - Two Garland County teenagers are charged with animal cruelty for shooting a farmer's livestock.
Police said Thursday that the boys, ages 16 and 17, killed two horses a cow and a donkey at a farm owned by a Pearcy man. Another cow was wounded in a horn and it was unclear whether the bovine would survive.
Authorities say the boys were arrested last week after the youths bragged about the killings at school. A counselor spoke to the boys, who allegedly admitted they committed the shootings.
The Sentinel-Record reports the teens have a Nov. 1 court appearance set in Garland County Juvenile Court. Their names were withheld because of their ages.
