Augusta (WQOW) -- An Augusta teen faces felony animal abuse charges after investigators say he shot three farm animals with arrows.

Jordan Strasser, who's 18, told investigators he bought a new bow and wanted to see what it would be like to shoot something with it. Stasser told deputies he and a friend drove around the Augusta area in February and shot at sheep and horses.

This is video of one of the horses that was shot and survived. A sheep at a different farm and another horse died from being shot. Strasser faces seven years in prison on the charges. The other teen, who is 16, is facing charges in juvenile court.
