WEST PRICE HILL, OH (FOX19) - A pet's owner is calling for justice after two teens are accused of beating a dog to death with a metal pole.

"I was just in shock, I was disgusted, I mean how could somebody do that," said Cherie Mills.

Mills found her purebred Pyrenees, Nawnee, in the backyard of her West Price Hill home one day after work, and that's where police say two kids trespassed and beat the dog to death.

"She was bleeding profusely everywhere. She bled to death," Mills said. "Tried to bandage her, call vets but it was after hours so I'm frantically trying to call around, trying to find a vet after hours, trying to call police, calling my friends to see if anyone can help me, but she died before I could get her there."

The police report states that the two "suspects killed the dog with an unknown weapon" and are charged with animal cruelty and criminal damaging/endangering. Mills says this wasn't the first time the teens threatened her.

"They've been mean to me ever since I moved here to this house a year and a half ago. The day after they actually beat her to death, they walked by acting like they're hitting, going woof-woof, acting like they're hitting her in the head. It was just disgusting," Mills said.

Mills now has Casey, her other dog, by her side, but since the incident, she installed security cameras on her property because she says enough is enough.

"There are teenagers running through this neighborhood just unsupervised and committing violence and the parents need to watch them," Mills said.

Other people in the neighborhood say they too have similar concerns with bad behavior from teens in the area. Many of them have also installed security cameras of their own.

The two teens are set to make their first court appearance in juvenile court on April 15. Mills says she will be in attendance.

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks with Russian President Vladimir Putin during a press conference after their meeting at the Presidential Palace in Helsinki, Finland, Monday, July 16, 2018.

    Standing alongside Putin, Trump steered clear of any confrontation with the Russian, going so far as to question American intelligence and last week's federal indictments that accused 12 Russians of hacking into Democratic email accounts to hurt Hillary Clinton in 2016.
