LUDWIGSLUST - A man who whipped his
fiancee with a cat faces prosecution under Germany's
strict animal-rights laws, police said Monday.
In a drunken rage, the 43-year-old picked up the pet cat
and repeatedly beat his fiancee with the feline until
the animal was a bloody pulp.
It was unclear whether the 49-year-old woman would file
charges of assault. She sustained cuts and bruises.
The cat did not survive and the man now faces
prosecution under stiff animal-rights laws.
A year ago, Germany amended its constitution to protect
the rights of all animals. Persons who unlawfully harm
or kill animals are liable to stiff fines and jail
