FAIRFAX COUNTY, Va. – Charges have been filed in an animal slashing case in Fairfax County.

Police said a 17-year-old male slashed barnyard animals on May 26 and on April 26. The teen, whose name was not released due to his juvenile status, faces four counts of maiming animals, three counts of cruelty to animals, and two counts of unlawful entry.

This arrest comes a day after police in Fairfax County filed charges against a zoo keeper after a wallaby died at the Reston Zoo.
