Teens charged with using stun gun to initiate dog attack.

Two Severn teens have been charged with using a stun gun to initiate two pit bull mixes to attack another dog, Anne Arundel police said Friday.

The 14-year-olds were arrested and charged with animal cruelty and related charges, police said.

Two stray pit bull mixes, around 1 to 2-years-old, were located in the area of Stillmeadows and Marlton Court on Nov. 9.

Further investigation revealed that the teens used a stun gun to make the dogs attack a third dog. The third dog received only minor injuries, Lt. Ryan Frashure, a county police spokesman said.

Police executed a search warrant on the teens' home Thursday and they were subsequently arrested.

Additional information was not immediately available Friday afternoon.
