Three Suspects Accused of Animal Cruelty Arrested

ABILENE, TX – Detectives with the Abilene Police Department have arrested two adult males and charged them with State Jail Felony Animal Cruelty charges. Jaden Blake (18 yoa), and Kallan Christopher (17 yoa) were both arrested this morning, Thursday, January 31, 2019. A sixteen year old male juvenile was taken into custody on Tuesday, January 29, and transported to the Juvenile Detention Center.

The three are accused of animal cruelty after a video surfaced on social media depicting the suspects lighting a fowl on fire on a rural county road and watching it burn to death. The animal appeared to have been doused with some type of accelerant. Detectives became aware of the incident on January 22, and immediately began an investigation.
