EDMONTON - Two teen boys have been accused of shooting animals on a property west of Edmonton.

RCMP say a horse, a calf, and four cows were shot in June 2012.

Only two cows survived.

An 18 year old from Stony Plain and a 15 year old from Spruce Grove have been charged with killing or injuring cattle, careless use of a firearm, and mischief over five thousand dollars.

They are both scheduled to appear in court in Stony Plain in March.
