Man Sentenced to Prison Time for Threatening Vets

A man has been sentenced to 60 days in prison for threatening the staff of a veterinary clinic via Facebook, RÚV reports. The threats were made via Facebook in 2016, after the man took his dog to the clinic.

“there’s every indication that […]they were negligent in their work when my gloria went in for her general exam three weeks ago,” read the post. “and if i find out that’s the case tomorrow morning you all won’t see me on [fb] in the coming days […] I AM SO INSANE RIGHT NOW THAT I SEE JAIL TIME AHEAD,” he wrote, and went on to threaten to kill the staff outright.

The man was also found guilty of importing imitation firearms. He had been charged with attempting to import real illegal firearms, but these were found to have been fake.
