Man under suspicion of shaving swastika on dog
Fri Nov 23, 2007 10:31am EST

BERLIN (Reuters) - German police are investigating a 29-year-old man suspected of shaving banned Nazi symbols into his dog's fur.

Police in the Bavarian town of Straubing said Thursday they had found the dog with a swastika and the insignia of Hitler's elite Waffen-SS troops marked on its body. They made the discovery when the suspect's ex-girlfriend requested police help to collect her belongings from his apartment because she was afraid of him.

It was not clear if the man, who has not commented on the markings, had shown the dog in public, a police spokesman said. "That still needs to be proved," he said. "If he only kept the dog inside the apartment, it wouldn't be public."

Public display of Nazi symbols is illegal in Germany. If found guilty, the man faces a jail term of up to three years.
What's this world coming to when a man can't throw back a few beers, get out the electric razor and shave a swastika into his pet in the privacy of his own home? :icon_conf

He can, just don't show it in public. Makes me wonder how many SS shrines there are in back rooms in Germany.

I knew a guy who lived with a family in Germany for a year. At a holiday meal, granny came to visit. After she ate, she got up to go to her room, turned around, and snapped off a perfect Nazi salute. :haha7:
