A 17 year old man from Skopje was arrested yesterday for the brutal killing of two stray dogs in the Aerodrom district.

The publication of the gory footage of the two dogs, killed with an axe in September, shocked the citizens. Police was using camera footage to identify the man who carried out the attack, and yesterday they informed that he is arrested.

Skopje has a huge problem with stray dogs who frequently attack passersby, and it is common to have citizens lay poisonous traps for stray dogs, but the axe killings were seen as especially brutal.
