A 62-year-old man hanged his dog with a string on 2020 January in Baranya county. The court of Siklós sentenced him to 40 days in jail because of animal torture.
According to blikk.hu, the ruling says that the defendant borrowed the 1-year-old bitch to cull his animals from one of his acquaintances. Instead of a proper leash, he used a string. After one day, however, he realized that she would not be suitable for the task because of the dog’s playful behaviour. Therefore, he decided to kill the dog.
Thus, he took her into a grove and hanged on a tree. Finally, the defendant buried the dog a couple of hundred metres away.
The sentence of the court is legally binding.
