An Iranian man has been sentenced to 74 lashes for killing a dog, after he was filmed hurling the animal against a car and beating it to death with a shovel.
The man was reported to police in  online video showed him hurling the animal repeatedly against his car.
The man was arrested earlier this year in the northwestern province of Ardebil following a complaint by the local head of the society for the protection of the environment.

A video went viral on social networks showing the man hurling the dog against his car and then beating him to death with a shovel.
The court also ordered the man to take weekly lessons for a year on how to care for animals, a local news agency reports.
It said the man was apparently the dog's owner but did not say why he killed it.
It was the latest in several recent cases of animal abuse in Iran that were brought to light by online videos.
Vice President Masoumeh Ebtekar, who also heads the Environmental Protection Organisation of Iran, has frequently denounced the ill-treatment of animals.
In April last year she called for an investigation after a short film showing several stray dogs being brutally killed went viral prompting protests outside her office.
Dog ownership is controversial in Iran as Islamic custom regards the animals as unclean.
Some families do keep dogs as pets behind closed doors and, especially in more affluent areas, walk them outside.
