South Carolina: Three boys, ages 12-13, arrested; accused of tying dog up in heavy chains so that it couldn't move, dragged it down the road into the woods and burned it alive - for fun

SOUTH CAROLINA -- Authorities have arrested two 12-year-old boys and a 13-year-old boy and charged them with cruelty to animals after a dog was wrapped in chains, dragged and set on fire in South Carolina.

Charleston County Sheriff Al Cannon said at a Friday news conference that the three boys remain in a juvenile prison.

The dog was found April 11 at The Center for Birds of Prey on U.S. 17 northeast of Charleston. The center’s director told police he saw several children leave the area as he approached the abused animal.

The boys are also charged with ill treatment of animals and unlawful burning.
