Stray Dog Stabbed by Butcher in Skopje

A butcher in Skopje, Macedonia, recently murdered a stray dog by repeated stabs using a butcher's knife. The dog, who was looked after by local residents, had never shown any signs of aggression. The butcher has confessed to committing the murder, claiming that the dog had attacked his wife and child the previous day, although according to the local clinic, no person had required medical attention for a dog bite on that day.

Unfortunately, animal abuse occurs on a regular basis in Macedonia, due to the lack of proper legislation. Please demand for a severe punishment for this horrendous crime and for the implementation of stricter animal abuse laws !
