Bakersfield, CA — Two teenagers have been charged with animal cruelty after police say they attempted to bury a puppy alive by the side of the road.
Luckily, a woman witnessed the two boys, ages 15 and 17, hitting one of three puppies with a stick and then bury it in a hole they had dug on the side of the road. After calling 911, she went to confront the boys who ran away leaving all three puppies behind. The 8-week-old pit bull mix was able to free itself from its intended grave.
(Stupid kids. Everyone knows that in order to kill a pit bull you need bury it alive in hallowed ground accompanied by a priest and a lot of luck.)
The 17-year-old eventually returned to the scene and the 15-year-old showed up shortly after with a parent in tow. The parent stated they had no idea what the boys were up to, but after a little investigating it turns out the boys owned the puppies but decided to kill them because they were having problems discipling them.
Both boys were taken to juvenile hall, charged with conspiracy and animal cruelty. The puppies were taken by animal control where they’ll probably be tossed in a dumpster alive.Tags: Animal Cruelty, buried alive, California, Crime, pit bull, puppy
