SAN ANTONIO -- Guadalupe County authorities arrested a group of teens who they said tortured a dog to death in an abandoned home on Tuesday.
Police said the three boys ages 12, 14, and 16 walked into Stephanie Tavere's yard and stole her beloved dog Tobey.
Officers said the teens took the dog to an abandoned house and repeatedly threw the dog out of a second story window.
After its legs were broken, the boys hung the dog in a tree and proceeded to beat it like a pinata, authorities said.
Police said the teens ended up decapitating the dog. More>
Nan Udell, an assistant co-attorney, says she is very disturbed by this and even more disturbed by the fact that the boys show no remorse whatsoever for the crime they committed.

SEGUIN - Three boys who allegedly hanged, beat to death and then beheaded a loose dog Tuesday evening are being held by Guadalupe County on animal cruelty charges.
Sheriffs Investigator Lt. Kevin Jordan said the boys were taken into custody a little before 9 p.m. Tuesday after Deputy Brian Wahlert was dispatched to Glenewinkel Road at 8:47 p.m. to investigate suspicious activity near an abandoned house.
"When the officer got out there, he found the boys and got to questioning them," Jordan said.
At least one of the juveniles reportedly had blood on his clothing, and when the officer asked questions, he found the answers offered by each didn't add up.
Continued investigation revealed the tortured and mutilated animal. Jordan said Investigator Robert Murphy was called to process the crime scene and collect evidence and statements.
Investigators found the dog had been hanged, beaten to death and then decapitated. In addition, it sustained burns and other major injuries.
