Puppy-Hurling Teen ID’d

Written by PETA | September 3, 2010

Shortly after PETA’s German affiliate received information from a Bosnian whistleblower who claimed to have identified the girl caught on video hurling puppies into a river, Bosnian police reportedly also identified the girl, whose actions had prompted an international outcry. In the video (which was allegedly shot by the girl’s brother), she can be seen cheerfully chucking the whimpering puppies to an almost certain death.

Earlier this week, PETA offered a $2,000 reward—and film director Michael Bay offered a $50,000 reward—for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible for this heinous act.

If convicted, the puppy abuser would face a fine of $6,400 under a newly adopted Bosnian animal-protection law.

    I think if anyone has an animal that they do not want to have little babies ones , needs to take the time to have them fixed , if you can’t afford the animals care , do not own one . This was so wrong – to toss these little helpless puppies into the river . No they are not human , but they have a heart beat and the owner of the dog ( Mother) should had been fix to prevent having a litter of pups . So yes someone deserves punisments out this , so it will not happen again and wake others up to the facts this is not to happen. The girl is under age , but they are turning to her parents for this abuse ….

    Bobby Ray if you don’t think slaughtering a cow constitutes violence then you obviously have no idea how that steak ended up on your plate…let’s see…being crammed on a transport truck or boxcar so tightly you cannot breathe not being given food or water for days being left unattended in the hot sun for hours while the driver of the truck eats showers and rests in air conditioned comfort at a Traveland Truck Stop or the train unloads cargo arriving at the slaughterhouse and having to be winched off the truck or boxcar by your hind legs because you can’t walk having the person at the stunning station aim at your head with the stunner and miss having your throat cut while you are fully awake and in panic having a worker start to peel off your skin before you pass out from the bleeding….yeah I can see why you would think slaughtering a cow does not constitute violence it’s because you have no empathy for any creature that is not a human being.

    Name and shame this girl… All she will get is a slap on the wrist and say “weee”. Disgusting.

    Another Jeffery Dalmer they always stare by toturing innocent animals.just wait

  • Magdalina Rodriguez says:

    A FINE? what an outrage!!! They should of given her jail for a year or more. The justice system really sucks for animals. They have to make these acts of cruelty more severe because if they don’t these MONSTERS are going to keep on hurting poor defenseless animals.

  • Sarah C says:

    I have to agree with Lori in a world where it is known that people who kill animals and show no remorse usually can kill a person the same way a 6400 fine is nothing. I watched the video and i would bet a lot of money that this was not a first offense. This monster does NOT deserve to be alive.

  • Cecelia says:

    No I didn’t see the video bothered me enough just to read about it. Then on top of that she went on fb and posted how when she see’s another one she would beat it to death with hammer. Maybe when she gets to the humans it will be someone that could have done something more about this.I think the whole family should have to pay dearly of course on the other hand maybe they will. I would sure hate to have children like this and have to go to sleep in the same house with them who knows what they might do.

  • pat doe says:

    I am just glad she is identified and will face some kind of reprimand. For a week or so I am sure she was watching her back and I am sure her neighbors and townspeople will shun her. She is young so I am glad she was caught and maybe this will stop her

  • Courtney says:

    She should be severely punished but wishing harm to come to her is crossing the line I think. Sure I’m upset that the most she’ll probably face is a fine and she should be sentenced to some jail time or at least a detention facility. But I don’t want to throw her in a river or beat her senseless. She’s young and probably not that bright. People make mistakes sometimes horrible ones such as this but two wrongs don’t make a right.

  • Olivia says:

    If a fine is imposed it should be paid in full. There’s no point having a punishment allowing factors to diminish it. Again I say if humans are made to endure what they do to animals then animals will become better off. A better additional punishment for this girl whoever shot the video would be to have to do community service in a place that aids injured abused animals until she understands that it isn’t acceptable.

  • Brains? says:

    Oh for the love of. Would every single one of you who are clamoring for jail time or to toss her into a riverinflict other bodily harm stop and think for a moment? I’m glad to see that there are a few rational people out there but really. What good does it do? Isn’t that just “Oh hey you hit someone so in return I’ll hit you back! Whoopdeedoo!” While I do not in any way agree that what she did was correct moral or in any way right or good it could be that she believed she was doing good. Newsflash not everyone is fully informed of everything! Choices are made based on what information is present social norms around a person peercommunity influences as well as snap feelings. It wasn’t uncommon in the past to get rid of animals that you couldn’t handle or for that matter get rid of newborns… and that custom too still continues in some parts of the world if I’m not mistaken. There’s plenty of factors other than her being a “monster” that would lead to such an act. Also I’m glad you’re all so riled up over a bunch of puppies why not direct that furor towards human lives? Or are they not cute and helpless enough for the lot of you?

  • Rose says:

    When I first heard about this incident I had to wonder what on Earth could make someone commit such a horrid act. Then I wondered how she could live with herself after being so cruel. Furthermore why on earth would her brother or anyone for that matter want to tape something like that??? It is a complete outrage!

  • Deborah says:

    What she did was un human. And she should be force to go to rehab be checked every week. Because those are early signs of a possible serial killer. After a while animals wo t be enough. But I disagree with yous about Michael Bay. He doesn’t have to do anything. It was nice that he even offered. Peta should make a donation organize like a fundraiser. I hope that girl really thinks about what she’s done. that she never harm an innocent animal again…

  • rebekka says:

    i think she should go to jail and suffer like she did to those poor puppies. its awful how people can abuse animals and feel good about themselves it makes me sick.

  • Alisha Barfield says:

    A 19 yr old should know better. My 7 yr old nephew does. I agree that it’s not helpful to wish violence against someone like this but how can you not? Especially when her only punishment if any will be a fine! Some people are just evil will never change if all they get is a slap on the wrist! A fine for an act like this is NOT justice!

  • Alex says:

    To “no big deal”. My dad came from Macedonia. He died in 1989. I’ve watched with sadness the changes in a region he remembered with pride. But to not care is not right because when you have the chance to be kind and you don’t take it something dies inside. Then one day you find you are able to deny compassion to anyone different to you. Cruelty is not determined by who the victim is but rather by doing something that you know hurts and still wanting to do it. Puppies people it’s actually all the same. Find your humanity and give kindness to everything that can feel and think and love and fear and suffer. It is a big deal!!

  • Jackie says:

    She gets a fine? Great job Bosnia for proving you’re a worthless country that should fall into the ocean.

  • doggy luver says:

    she is such a great person…for me to poop on!!triumph the comedic dog

  • Anna Bell says:

    I think that she should do jail time and have a bigger fine. I also think they should fine her brother for being a part of that disgusting act. Hopefully they will see her as an example that animal abuse is a crime and you will pay one way or another.

  • wow says:

    Wow what a bunch of forward thinking goodwilled people you are. Jesus Christ wishing death on a young girl who hasn’t been taught that it’s wrong to do that in the first place. Seriously you wonder why the mainstream dismisses you as hate filled juvenile and lacking in common sense.

  • carrie says:

    That girl will one day stand in front of the Almighty and have to answer to Him hopfully she will get thrown into the lake of fire as it is written in the bible anyone having a sexual relation with an animal or abusing them will be cast in the lake of fire we need to pray for her…and all the assholes doing experiments on animals there day will come hope they can swim!!!!

  • shirley says:

    they need to make the laws stiffer for animal abusers. give me just 30 min with the girl and her brother and they would never throw anything over into the water again. that is what is wrong with the law an animal is treated like they are nothing to me they are my children according to the law in NC u have to supply food and water but it is not mandatory to supply shelter. how would they like to lay in the rain or snow just like that no good girl and her brother how would she like to be chunked from a bridge. Its a good thing I dont live where she lives or she would find out.

  • Maria W says:

    This pair brother sister should be put into an asylum for the week if they want to behave in a mad as a hatter way like this then they should be treated as such.

  • Becca says:

    I think it’s amazing that both Michael Bay and PETA offered rewards for the identity of this “woman.” They shouldn’t just throw her in a river they should cut her arms and legs off then throw her in an so she was completly helpless just like those puppies were. Even if those pups had “parasites” like she claimed she could have taken them to a shelter even dropped them off outside of a shelter..given them away or even GET THEM TO A VET HERSELF. People like this make me sick.

  • Aileen says:

    what kind of way were these ppl brought up that led them to believe that this act was ok or even humerous! she and the person who taped it should be jailed! they are sick excuses for human beings

  • Simpy says:

    Karma.. It gets everyone in the end whether in this life or the next…Karma. This inhumane waste of life will get her Karma and so will her brother.
