doggone it.

An Islamic court has sentenced a dog to death by stoning, after the animal was announced to be a reincarnated lawyer who had insulted the court 20 years ago.

According to, the hound pranced into the court rooms, scaring and disturbing court order.

Despite the judges attempting to drive the dog out of the room, it “refused ” to leave, making one judge suggest that this was the offender from the case two decades ago.

According to the judge, the lawyer was put under a curse by the court, as a punishment for his insults – thus being that his spirit is put into the body of a dog, whom Islam culture believe to be an “impure creature” (Ynet).

Fortunately for the canine, it escaped before its sentence.
