BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (AP) — 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 (http://bit.ly/1vOxAKA ) 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.
