Two high school students are in custody, accused of shooting one llama and beheading another.

Harris County Pct. 1 Constable Alan Rosen says the two juveniles were arrested on Thursday. They're charged with one count each of animal cruelty, a felony, and two counts each of misdemeanor criminal mischief.

"Just when you think you've heard it all, along comes a bizarre case that makes you wonder what goes through people's minds, especially young people," said Rosen.

According to Rosen, it happened on March 6 when the two juveniles -- students at Tomball High School -- went onto the property of Figment Ranch on March 6. The llama that was shot survived.

The case went cold for two months, but Rosen says the two teens confessed. At this point, there is no motive.

The llamas that were attacked are show-quality, which can sell for around $20,000 apiece.
