Girl Who Threw Puppies Into River On Video Won’t Be Charged
October 6, 2010
Katja Puschnik became one of the most hated people on the Internet, after a link to a video of her throwing puppies into a river was posted on message board 4chan.
It sparked an investigation into her identity, with international animal rights groups calling for her to be prosecuted for cruelty, as well as her brother, who videotaped the incident.
But police say they will not charge Puschnik because of her age, and her parents will also not face any fines for the event. Animal rights groups have reacted angrily to the news, and have called for reconsideration on the matter.
