Ind. teenager arrested in goat mutilation

ROANOKE — Police in northeastern Indiana have arrested a teenager who they say stabbed and mutilated three goats.

Nineteen-year-old Tanner Macy of Roanoke was free Saturday after posting $10,000 bond on felony charges of of torturing or mutilating a vertebrate animal and obstruction of justice.

Macy was arrested Thursday after Allen County sheriff’s deputies tracked footprints from the pen where the goats were killed to Macy’s home less than a half-mile away. Investigators allegedly found blood-stained shoes and jeans inside Macy’s home.

A police affidavit says the goats’ injuries appeared to have come from “a very large knife” or similar object.

Macy couldn’t be reached for comment Saturday because there was no phone number listed in his family’s name.
