NEW ORLEANS - The Louisiana Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has increased the reward in a goat beheading case.

A $14,000 reward is now being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those involved, up significantly from the initial offering of $3,000 for info relating to the beheading.

Cellphone video surfaced in late March of a group of young men beheading a goat with a machete-like sword.

The Louisiana SPCA says they are "aggressively investigating this heinous felony act of animal cruelty."

The SPCA says the 12 second video shows at least five young men around a kiddie pool where a white goat with a brown head is pulled into the air with a rope and one man cuts off its head.
