MERCER COUNTY, Ohio (WANE) — The Mercer County Sheriff’s Office is conducting an investigation after receiving a call Tuesday night about a “disturbing video” involving a youth and a calf.
According to police, the head office received a call about the video shortly before 9:00 p.m. on Tuesday, in which the caller reported that the video showed a youth “inflicting cruel acts on a young calf”.
Police launched an investigation which has identified several juvenile suspects and one of the juveniles is in custody.
The farmer from Marion Township was not aware of the incident and is fully cooperating with the investigation, according to the police.
The names of the suspects were not released because the suspects are juveniles.
The report is still under review by the Mercer County Attorney’s Office, and police say it’s possible formal charges may be filed.
