A girl shown in a video throwing puppies into a river has been traced, police in Bosnia said today.
The teenager, wearing a hooded top, caused worldwide outrage when she was shown online apparently killing six newborn puppies by throwing them into the river one by one.
Police in the central Bosnian town of Bugojno said they had found the girl from leads given by animal protection groups in the country.
The girl’s parents will soon be questioned, police said. Under Bosnian law, people can be fined up to €4,700 for animal cruelty.
