Activist bitten by police dog  

Credit:  Peter Skeel Horth ~~

The Danish police begins to shows its true face in Østerild.

Two activists were arrested Thursday morning in Østerild Klitplantage in Thy, Denmark. One was bitten by a police dog.

Activists went through a police bar. Police dogs were sent into the area, and one of the activists had superficial scratches, as the dogs stopped him, a police spokesman said .

The activist who was bitten is Amos Stenner, who Tuesday made ​​himself noticed when he sat for hours in a tree to be cut down.

We were going to build a nest in one of the trees that have not yet been harvested. There was no police bar or warnings. When the police came, we would leave, but I forgot my jacket and phone at the nest, and went back to retrieve it. Suddenly a German shepherd came behind me and bit my arm, Amos Stenner from the activists’ camp in Østerild told the press.

“The dog bit my arm and my leg. It was very painful”, Amos Stenner said. He has spoken with his lawyer. And it may well be that this ends with a lawsuit.

At hospital Amos Stenner had his wounds cleaned at hospital. He is released, while the other arrested activist was kept for interrogation. Both can expect a fine of 4000 Dkr = 550 Euro.
