Peruvian MP shoots neighbour’s dog

A PERUVIAN MP has been reported to the country’s Congress for allegedly gunning down his neighbour’s dog.

Opposition Nationalist MP Miro Ruiz allegedly shot and killed the 18-month-old Schnauzer named Matias, claiming the dog had been harassing ducks on his property.

Nina Ventura de Cardenas, the dog’s owner, filed a formal complaint with Congress on Monday of this week, calling the MP a ‘madman’ who needed to be controlled. Mr Ruiz has denied the allegation, saying he ‘loved’ small animals.
