      Teens plead guilty to torturing cattle

      Two Escanaba teens accused of torturing cattle in Menominee have plead guilty.

      Nicholas Michael Leisner and Peter John Sauve were arrested in July for the alleged beating of three cattle at a farm in Wilson.

      Two of the animals were so severely injured that they were euthanized.

      Leisner and Sauve will be sentenced on three felony counts of torturing or killing an animal.

      Each felony carries a maximum penalty of up to four years in prison and a $5,000 fine. Sentencing is scheduled for February 6.
