Two people accused of animal cruelty against horses earlier this month have been arrested, Maricopa County officials say.
On Thursday, MCSO says 20-year-old Lawrence Weinhart and a 16-year-old boy were arrested on burglary and animal cruelty charges.
The horse that was attacked most was elderly and trapped inside a pen.
“He was crashing into the rails, trying to do everything to get away from them -- to get out of his pen,” said Sean, the horse’s owner.
Video shows the suspects repeatedly throwing large five- to 10-pound rocks at the fenced-in animal.
