MANHEIM, Pa. (AP) -- Police in Pennsylvania say two men and a 17-year-old boy are facing charges after they exploded two M-80 firecrackers on a turtle, killing the reptile.

Northern Lancaster County Regional Police said Wednesday that 21-year-old Taylor Geib, 21-year-old Austin Garner and the teen have been charged with prohibited offensive weapons and criminal conspiracy.

Police say the three duct-taped two firecrackers on the turtle's shell on Aug. 3 in Penn Township and lit the fuses. They're accused of also setting off a third firecracker.

Officers found a small crater with the remains of the turtle.

It's unclear if they have attorneys who could comment on the charges.
