JACKSONVILLE, Florida (AP) — Three teenage girls are facing animal cruelty charges after video appeared online of them allegedly throwing a bunny against a wall several times.

The Florida Times-Union reported Sunday that the Jacksonville-area girls giggled and laughed as the bunny smashed against the wall. The video shows one of the girls kick the bunny as it tries to escape.

After the video was posted, the girls were located Saturday by the Nassau County Sheriff’s Office and arrested. The three are 13 and 14.

The bunny was found at the home and taken to the local animal shelter where it is being treated for a broken leg.
