Charges filed against teens who appeared in deer torture video

White Tail Deer

Two Pennsylvania teenagers who appear in a viral video that showed a deer being tortured have been charged according to WJAC News.

The video went viral over the weekend of Nov.30-Dec. 1 and shows two teens, 18-year-old Alex Smith and a 17-year-old juvenile attacking the deer.

They have been charged with two felony counts of aggravated animal cruelty and two felony counts of conspiracy to commit aggravated animal cruelty, as well as several other misdemeanor and summary counts.

The white-tail deer appears to have been shot by a hunters rifle before the teens attacked it. The video shows two young males kicking and abusing the animal.
