Jail time for cruelty in Croatia

From ANIMAL PEOPLE, March 2006:

ZAGREB–A Croatian court for the first time jailed an animal
abuser, Animal Friends Croatia e-mailed on January 27, 2006, after
Judge Jasna Zoretic gave Ostoja Babi five months, one month less
than the maximum, for severely beating his dog in December 2004. A
police officer shot the dog to end her suffering.
“Animal Friends Croatia staged a demonstration in front of
Babic’s house and collected more than 2,400 petition signatures in
less than a week,” demanding the prosecution, the AFC e-mail said.
Animal Friends Croatia is now seeking to increase the
Croatian penalties for extreme animal abuse, and bar persons
convicted of extreme abuse from ever again keeping animals.
