Police nab puppy killer

Written by Nermin Hajdarbegovic


Sociopath in the making
Police have apparently managed to locate and identify a young woman featured in a graphic and disturbing video posted on YouTube and carried by numerous news outlets.

The video shows the girl throwing several puppies into a raging river and needless to say it has caused worldwide outrage and prompted animal rights groups and individuals to offer sizable awards for her identification. Popcorn flick director Michael Bay has even offered a $50,000 bounty on information leading to her arrest and numerous groups of online vigilantes have trying to establish her identity were formed over the past two days.

On Friday police in the sleepy Bosnian town of Bugojno announced they have identified the puppy killer and her parents, but we cannot reveal her name due to legal issues. According to some unconfirmed reports, she is just 12 years old, which means that she cannot face criminal charges and she cannot be officially named as the culprit, as all criminal investigations involving juveniles are confidential. However, under Bosnian law her parents, identified only by their initials M.P. and M.P. could be faced with a fine of up to €6000. Under the current penal code, some forms of animal abuse are punishable by short prison terms, but as the girl is apparently under 14, this does not appear to be an option.

Animal rights activist Velimir Ivanisevic told a local newspaper that the parents should be held accountable for the girl’s actions. He added that the girl obviously needed help and that the incident was merely proof that today’s society is “sick”.

As for Michael Bay’s bounty, we guess the police could use it, as the local police station was blown up by a religious nut two months ago.

Better yet, just put her in a room full of PETA nutjobs that are equipped with dull butter knives. :D

"the incident was merely proof that today’s society is 'sick'."
Oh great. More generalisation.. *sigh*
I'm glad they found this girl though. I don't think the 'punishment' was enough however, regardless of her age.

Hm... That might turn them into carnivores in 2.8 seconds.

I do not understand the lynch-mob mentality many people are adapting; it seems as though a lot of people reacting strongly to this have drifted out of touch. One can safely assume that the girl lives in a household with a dog who recentely gave birth (I would think gathering 6 young puppies would be quite difficult otherwise), and the family isn't able to support the puppies, possibly tried giving them away, to no avail-surely it's more humane to kill the puppies than to leave them on the street, diseased and unfed, up for abuse by belligerent drunks and cruel youth, is it not?

If she did indeed murder the animals to derive some kind of sadistic pleasure, that is messed up, but as far as I can tell, other explanations seem to be far more likely.

People used to drown pups all the time. What the hell is wrong with you people? I agree with Taoist. It's unpleasant, but sometimes far better than the available alternatives. Sadistic? Sociopath? Be a little realistic. I love dogs, but I'm not going judge that girl without knowing more.

benny, did that smirk on her face that she had right before throwing one of them told you anything?

I cannot speak for Benny, but you are mistaken: there was no smirk. I am not omniscient, however, so feel free to tell me the min:sec of the vid at which this occurs.

On a side note, there are two arguments that could be made for the act being of sadistic nature; the girl making light of the issue by making a somewhat humorous sound as she was throwing one of the puppies, and the 2nd being, the mere existence of this tape. The first is not necessarily indicative of sadism, and can be interpreted as an attempt to liven up a mundane routine, and the 2nd can be chalked up to impulsive and insensitive decisions made by a lot of young teenagers.
