MEAUX, France, Aug 30, 2007 (AFP) - Four men were jailed in France Wednesday for tying two dogs to the back of their car after a night of drinking, and clubbing the bloodied animals to death with baseball bats.

The men, from Mouroux east of Paris, were found guilty of dragging the dogs for several kilometres before finishing them off with a beating.

They were each handed a four-month jail sentence with a further eight months suspended and a two-year probation period, and ordered to pay the dogs' owners a total of 2,000 euros (2,700 dollars) in damages.
