In the case of a drowned dog, a 38-year-old has been sentenced to eight months' probation. A corresponding penalty order is now final because the objection periods have expired, said a police spokesman on Friday. The Güstrow district court could not be reached for further information.
In March of this year, the fire brigade rescued a Rottweiler from the Libowsee near Glasewitz (Rostock district). According to the police spokesman, this had been weighed down with an anvil. According to the police, the now convicted man had been identified after information from the population.
