Last week some incriminating video surfaced of a young girl tossing newborn puppies in the river. Well, the public outcry was so loud, Bosnian authorities conducted an investigation and popped the puppy pitching Becky.
Police in Bosnia said that they have located the girl who caused global outrage this week after an online video of her surfaced, showing the blonde hurling six crying puppies into a river one by one.
The name of the girl, who is a juvenile, has not been released. But she was found after tips were received from animal protection groups in the country, London’s Telegraph reported on Friday.
Police said the girl’s parents will now be questioned.
The underage girl is from Bugojno, a central Bosnian town with a population of approximately 50,000.
A girl who claimed to be the one from the video posted a separate apology video on YouTube, CNET reported. She identified herself as Katja Puschnik.
Under one video frame, the apology said, “I would like to apologize for my behavior. The puppies belonged to my grandma and she told me to get rid of them because they were only 3 days and were ill. They had parasites from their mother. I didn’t knew exactly what to do so I thrown them in the river because it was a short death. I did not want to make them suffer. I am really sorry for this :-( ”
The video apology has since been removed, and the girl’s identity could not be verified.
Velimir Ivanisevic, head of Sarajevo animal group SOS, said he was told the original video was filmed by the girl’s brother.
“It is a mirror of society and the fact that young people are doing such things shows how they have been raised,” Ivanisevic said.
The 44-second clip shows the young woman smiling as she picks several puppies out of a white bucket and viciously tosses them into rapidly moving river. At one point the girl exclaims “whee.”
Under Bosnian law, a person who kills or tortures animals can be fined anywhere from $19 to as much as $6,400.
Animal rights groups around the world have condemned the girl’s horrific actions.
Sorry folks, nothing to see here. She won’t be doing Mike Vick numbers on this one. They pop puppies like balloons in Bosnia.
