17-year-old charged with stabbing animals
Question of the Day
A 17-year-old Herndon area boy was arrested on Saturday in connection with seven animals stabbed at Kidwell Barn over the past two months.
The boy was charged with four felony counts of maiming animals, three misdemeanor counts of cruelty to animals and two counts of unlawful entry, according to Fairfax County police.
In late April, three horses were stabbed at the barn, adjacent to Frying Pan Park, a 1930s replica working farm. A month later, two goats, a calf and a chicken were also stabbed at the same location. All of the animals survived the attacks.
“This is an anomaly. That park’s been there for more than 50 years and we’ve never had an incident like this before,” Judy Pederson, Fairfax County Park Authority public information officer said.
Ms. Pederson called the community’s response to the incidents “heartwarming,” saying they showed their support through comforting park staff, and raising finances. Friends of Frying Pan Park offered a $7,500 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction. A tip on Friday led to the arrest, according to Fairfax County police.
The case is scheduled for a juvenile hearing Monday.
