AMSTERDAM - A 28-year-old Frenchman killed his dog in Amsterdam on Friday while under the influence of hallucinogenic mushrooms and marijuana.
The animal had to be slaughtered using scissors and a knife in order to free its spirit, the man told police.
Officers found the man in a confused state, naked and covered in blood in his van on the Herengracht. The butchered dog, a bloody pair of scissors and knife were found in the van. The inside of the vehicle was covered in blood.
The man said he had taken hallucinogenic mushrooms and smoked marijuana.
This is the most recent in a series of incidents in Amsterdam this year involving hallucinogenic mushrooms. Last weekend a 19-year-old Icelandic tourist jumped from his hotel window, breaking bones in both legs, while under the influence of this substance.
A 17-year-old French girl jumped to her death in March after taking the mushrooms.
