Police in South Carolina have arrested two teenagers who tortured a puppy by shooting it with a BB gun 18 times.
The 6-week-old puppy was found by a maintenance worker and was bleeding. He took to an animal hospital.
Doctors at the Ebenezer Animal Hospital said that the puppy, a Lab mix named Brody, had 18 wounds. The projectiles were left inside the pup because removing them could cause permanent damage.
They put little Brody on pain medication and will attempt to remove the foreign objects when he gets a bit older.
17-year-old De’Monte Douglas and a 14-year-old friend of his were arrested on a charge of animal cruelty.
Douglas is being held on $5,000 bail, while the 14-year-old boy was released to his parents.
