Zagreb – This vacationer was really disgusting: While drunk, a German tourist in Croatia beat his own dog to death with a hammer. Arrest!
As the police announced on Tuesday, the gruesome scene occurred on Saturday afternoon in the northern Croatian port city of Rijeka. The 51-year-old, who, according to a police spokeswoman in Croatia, was on vacation, is now in custody.
According to the police, the German hit his dog on the head with a hammer, killing him. He was therefore drunk in the act, and also had several grams of the drug ketamine with him.
But that’s not all: when the police took him for interrogation, he also rioted in the police station!
The police now accuse him of animal killing and cruelty to animals as well as damage to property. He faces a one-year prison sentence.
