Man indicted for animal torture

Posted: Updated:

NEW CASTLE, KY (WAVE) - A Henry County man is facing felony charges accused of beating two puppies to death. 

In all, five dogs were abused. Two are recovering a third is still unaccounted for. 

Investigators were able to get an indictment against Brandon Grant, 25, after his girlfriend, who was the owner of the puppies, recorded the abuse on camera. 

"He beat puppies to death ... with his bare hands and a stick," said Bryan Brown, a dog owner. "It takes a sick individual to do that." 

Investigators say the abuse happened last year. Grant is now charged with two counts of animal torture. He was arrested May 5.Copyright 2014 WAVE 3 News. All rights reserved.
