A 16-year-old Northside boy will face the ACT Childrens Court this morning (Wednesday, February 22) charged with aggravated cruelty to an animal causing death.
Police will allege the youth killed at least three dogs by setting them on fire and then dismembering them. The remains of three dogs were located by police in a vacant grass area yesterday afternoon.
A search warrant was conducted yesterday at the youth’s home where a number of evidentiary items were located. The youth was arrested at the conclusion of the search warrant and taken to the ACT Watch House where he was charged.
