Bosnian Police Track Down Girl Who Threw Puppies Into River
September 3, 2010
(ChattahBox World News) – The Internet was in an uproar this week, after a teenage girl was seen in a video grabbing newborn puppies from a bucket and hurling them into a river. She was tracked down in Bosnia, and police say they have her and her family awaiting questioning.
Bosnia is not well known for animal rights protection. But with the major response from international viewers of the video, Bosnian police took tips from local animal rights groups and found her.
The underage girl has been named as Katja Puschnik, a name released earlier this week by several users of message board 4chan. There was originally some debate over whether a Facebook profile was really hers. The profile has since been taken down, though there are a number of groups open claiming it was her, or that she is innocent.
Funny enough, media sources have been saying they won’t release her name because of her age. However, in the tags of the CBS news story where they say this, they list her full name. Other media sources have listed the name of her brother, who taped the puppy-hurling.
Katja’s parents are being questioned and may face a $6,000 fine.
