    WOODHAVEN, Mich. -- Two teenagers accused of killing a guinea pig in front of lacrosse teammates at a Detroit-area high school were charged with felonies in an incident that wasn't a "youthful prank," a prosecutor said Monday.
    The guinea pig's throat was cut before the animal was beaten with a small bat before an April 30 game, Grosse Ile Township police said.

    Tanner Coolsaet, 18, and Michael Roth, 17, both of Grosse Ile, were charged with killing or torturing animals and conspiracy. The maximum penalty is 4 years in prison.

    According to Wayne County prosecutor Kym Worthy said, the two teens showed up to a team meeting, at around 11:30 a.m., with a guinea pig in a box. Coolsaet had a knife and slit the guinea pig's throat, Worthy said. Roth then allegedly grabbed the animal and struck it with a small bat, CBS Radio WWJ reported.

    There were reports that team members drank the guinea pig's blood and that they painted their faces with blood as part of a ritual. Worthy did not confirm those details.

    Coolsaet and Roth appeared in court in Woodhaven and were released on bond. Roth's attorney, James Sparrow, declined to comment on the case but said the teen graduated from Grosse Ile High School after the alleged incident.

    Coolsaet's attorney didn't return a phone message seeking comment. Coolsaet was a senior and team captain.

    "The alleged facts in this case illustrate much more than a youthful prank or a pre-game antic," Worthy said. "We must take these cases seriously."

    The killing didn't happen on school grounds and not all members of the team were present. The team was kept off the field as authorities investigated and word of a possible animal cruelty became public in May.

    ''They let a lot of people down: teammates, people in the community, school. They let themselves down," coach Butch Ryan said.

    I said what I did because animal torture is very common in a lot of serial killers backgrounds.

    What little cunts. Can't even imagine holding a little animal down and being able to slit it's throat. That's a whole different level of fucked up. Can't these kids just shove their lacrosse sticks up each other's asses like the football players do?

    Callous indifference to a helpless animal's pain and suffering shows a lack of kindness, compassion and conscience.
    Leopold and Loeb probably started out this way.

    Where's the felony murder charge in the article?
    I see a felony animal cruelty case, but no one being charged with murder.

    Guinea pigs are such sweet, inquisitive, happy little creatures.

    Glad Michigan has felony animal abuse laws, many states don't.
