    Croatian soccer player kills chicken in full match

    A Croatian animal welfare association announced on Wednesday its intention to file a lawsuit against a soccer player accused of kicking a chicken in a semi-professional match.


    The incident occurred on Sunday when chickens broke into a soccer field in eastern Croatia.

    Ivan Gazdek of host NK Jelengrad ran behind the birds, kicking one of them before throwing it over the fence in a cloud of feathers.

    The 23-year-old received a red card for unsportsmanlike conduct.

    The NGO Friends of Animals denounced "the shameful act and cowardly behavior of the player towards an innocent animal who died the broken bones, in pain".

    The association announced that it would file a complaint for "criminal act", "killing or torturing an animal".

    If charged and found guilty, the person incurs up to one year in prison.

    Gazdek defended himself in the Croatian press, claiming he was a friend of the animals, that he had several pets and that he had "no intention" of killing the chicken.

    "I ran behind the chickens to drive them off the field, I swung my foot and killed one accidentally. I do not care". The "chickens constantly enter the field and interrupt the match. The ground is filled with excrement, it is not hygienic, "he told 24 Sata newspaper.

    Last month in France, a young man, a top Basque pelota player, was sentenced to 80 hours of community service after being filmed tearing the head of a live rooster with his teeth a meal watered.
