PINEVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Two teenagers face charges after their arrest for shooting cows in eastern Kentucky.

Bell County Sheriff Bruce Bennett told WYMT-TV in Hazard that four local farmers found bullets wounds on about 20 of their cows.

The young suspects are held in the Adairville Juvenile Detention Center. Their names were not released because of their age.

Bennett says the teens face two felony charges and several misdemeanors.
