A fellow at a local footie match at Olula del Rio was so angry by the ref’s decision that he picked up a dog sitting quietly next to him and threw it at the ref when he came nearby.
The dog, which was more startled than anything, quietly limped away, whilst its owner punched the aggressor in the face.
The fight took place last Sunday in Olula del Rio’s Juan José Rodriguez football stadium between Comarca del Mármol & La Cañada Atlético teams.
A vet who examined the animal said that despite having dropped two meters down, it was only bruised and scared.
A nearby Guardia Civil officer separated the two men and nicked the prat for animal abuse. He was also later charged with football hooliganism which could lead to him being banned from future matches.
The breed of the dog is sadly not mentioned in the article from La Voz.
