Turn those b*tches into French Fries so they'll know how that feels. See how entertaining they think it is then!

From today....

Buffalo Police say they have two teenagers in custody in connection with the case involving Phoenix, a puppy that was set on fire in the city late last month.

Charges are being finalized, but it's likely the teens will face felony animal cruelty charges. Their names have not yet been released.

Because both suspects are in their late teens, police say they will be charged as adults.

Their arraignments could come as early as Wednesday (Nov 21, 2012).

Buffalo Police would not comment on a possible motive and are expected to release more information once charges are official.

A police spokesperson said a weekend tip from the public helped officers get to the suspects, who were picked up for questioning late Tuesday afternoon.

Phoenix is currently recovering at the Buffalo Small Animal Hospital. Officials at the Buffalo Animal Shelter say he will not be available for adoption until he is completely healed.
