Thomas 'Landon' Grant and Jacob Frye, both 19, students at Central Alabama Community College in Alexander City, Alabama were arrested and accused of animal cruelty after they pulled a white Muscovy duck from a pond to beat it with a baseball bat inside of an apartment after baseball gathering on May 5, 2019.
A coach went to investigate some noise he had heard in the woods nearby and found the animal inside of a bag, barely alive.
The duck had to be euthanized by a nearby vet.
Grant was arrested and held at Tallapoosa County Jail with a Class C felony charge on May 31 and posted $5,000 bond, while his partner, Frye turned himself in to Tallapoosa County Jail in Alexander City shortly after.
Grant will appear in court in late July for a hearing.
