Russian girls post pictures of animal violence on web

The Russian internet community has expressed shock at pictures of animal violence posted on the web. Pet-owners in Moscow say a local gang of underage girls is deliberately setting its dogs against other animals in the area.

According to witnesses, the girls set up such experiments for fun, and afterwards post the pictures on the web. They keep their dogs hungry for days and beat them before releasing them at other animals.

The alleged leader of the gang is registered with the local police department. She has already had to pay compensation to a local dog owner for making her own pet kill the woman's dog.

However, no legal proceedings have been instigated against her, or her friends.
