12 year old allegedly drowned two dogs

FRESNO, Calif.

It happened at White Crane Road and Bert Crane Road Friday.

The boy's foster father called Merced County Sheriff's Deputies to report the boy had killed a couple of the family's dogs.

The boy told investigators he threw one dog down an irrigation pipe after it tried to bite him, and then threw two other dogs down a smaller pipe. The top of the pipe was then covered with a chunk of cement.

The dog thrown into the irrigation pipe washed out into a canal but was able to make it out and return home.

The other two dogs are believed to have drowned.
