Boots Stanley and friend Steven Sadler can be seen harassing a Pit Bull type dog. One of the men put the dog on the back of a horse and attempt to ride over some obstacles, with the dog clinging to the back of the horse, a rope tied around its neck holding it tightly onto the saddle horn. The next scene shows Steven Sadler holding the dog on the ground and then repeatedly slitting its throat with a knife.
the 3 teens killed a hamster, torturing animals, encouraging dog fights, bullying daughters of neighbors and one neighbor believing his dog was possibly killed by the same teens. They reference a dog named Shadow from the property where the teens were arrested that was seeking shelter while showing visible signs of hip or leg damage
