Two Texas teens behead llama: What led to two Tomball High School 16 year olds viciously targeting two ranch animal farm animals?

Two sixteen Texas school teens have been arrested after admitting to beheading one llama whilst shooting another.

Arrested and charged with animal cruelty along with two counts of criminal trespass over the inexplicable attack on the llamas were two 16 year old boys.

The youths arrest come two months after the brutal attack took place at a Cypress ranch in early March, after the teens broke into a local ranch were the llamas were being groomed for the local production of their wool hair. 

Discovery of the attack came after Figment Ranch owners, Ruby Herron and Robin Turell told the nydailynews of first discovering Lorenzo, who guarded the livestock, when a worker went out for a feeding and saw the beaten llama limp towards him.

Ironically, the stricken llama had ended up at the ranch after having been rescued from another, abusive farm. Taken to veterinary hospital, Lorenzo was treated after shot once under the leg and grazed on the head.

But it gets worse.

It wasn’t until the ranchers saw buzzards gathered in the field that they found the Texas teens’ second victim, a show llama, named La Tida who’d been decapitated.

The winner of ‘many, many’ competitions, the ranchers told of the beheaded beast also having been partly skinned. Of note, at the time of the attack, the prized llama had been pregnant told a report via the Houston Chronicle.

To date, the abused animal’s missing head has yet to turn up.

While investigators demurred investigating the case, pro bono private investigator, Mark Stephens was able to track down several kids who knew of the attack.

Up until the discovery of the attacker’s identity, a GoFundMe page had raised upwards of $5000 as reward money leading to the arrest of the culprits behind the savage attack on the ranch llamas.

The teens responsible for the attack according to the Dallas Morning News, attend Tomball High School, yet because they are juveniles their identities have not been revealed.

Told ranch owner Herron: If these kids did that at 16 to any animal, can you imagine their next step.’

The ranchers, who shear their llamas to make rugs, say that Lorenzo’s attitude has completely changed after the attack, and he is still working to regain his trust of people.

Other llamas at the ranch are still afraid to go near the spot where their former playmate was killed.

The attack tell the ranchers has likely cost the farm $20,000 as of a result of La Tida not having any more children.

Told Constable Alan Rosen during a Thursday press conference: ‘They did not tell us why they committed this act,’

‘We will eventually find out why they did this. It’s a very sad case. The people at the Figment Ranch really love these animals.’

The Texas teens are expected to make their first court appearance on Monday as observers struggle to understand what led to the llamas being targeted?
