Maryland boys beat puppy to death

By Mike McPhate

Two boys have been arrested after police say they beat a puppy to death at a Baltimore golf course, the news station WJZ reports.

The boys, one 10 and the other 11, are being held at the city’s juvenile detention center after golfers saw them beating the pit bull puppy with belts and sticks last month at the Carroll Park Golf Course, police told reporters.

Golfers nearby heard the screams of the puppy and tried to intervene. "It looked like every bone was broken in its body. Nothing was attached," a golfer told WJZ.

Read the WJZ report.

This is just sickening! First, to beat an animal to death and second, to think about the ages of the people responsible for it -- a 10 and 11 year old! This is disgusting!!
