Boys fined for turd attack

Four teenage boys were fined 5,700 kronor for smothering a fellow classmate with dog crap and snow in January in southern Sweden.

The four boys — three aged 16 and one aged 15 — covered him with snow and faeces they picked up from the ground. They smashed dog turd into his mouth, nose, ears, and even into his hair. The incident was reported to the police by the school’s principal, Sydsvenskan reported.

According to the district court in Lund, there was not solid evidence that the four boys intended to rub their comrade down with poo when they collected snow from the ground. But the insult itself was degrading enough to warrant the fine.

“It’s good there are consequences for such actions,” said Ann-Louise Raquett, the principal who reported the case.
