Roanoke Teen Arrested in Goat Killings

January 28, 2013 Updated Jan 28, 2013 at 9:55 AM EDT

A Roanoke teenager is facing charges for stabbing and mutilating three goats.

Police say Tanner Macy, 19, is preliminarily charged with three felony counts of torturing or mutilating a vertebrate animal, and one felony count of obstruction of justice.

He was arrested Thursday after police followed footprints leading from the goat pin back to Macy's house less than a half-mile away. Inside the house police found blood-stained shoes and jeans.

Macy was taken to the Allen County Lockup but has since been released on bond.
