Pakistan- Dog sentenced to death for biting a child

Pakistani dog to die for its crimes

In a bizarre move, a dog has been sentenced to death in Pakistan for biting a child.

Assistant Commissioner Raja Saleem of Punjab province, who declared the punishment, said his decision was based on humanitarian grounds.

The dog has already completed a one-week sentence in prison over the same 'crime', his owner Jamil claimed, pleading "any further punishment would be unfair".
