Law proposal in Iran: 74 lashes for having a dog
Three to six months in prison and 74 lashes. That is the proposal presented in the Iranian parliament for people owning, selling or buying a dog.

The bill, reported by the US-funded Radio Farda, says that anyone who takes a pet such as a monkey or a dog into the public sphere destroys the Islamic culture and health, and can cause civil unrest.

Therefore, all who have been warned but continued to sell or buy certain animals will be fined with a maximum fine of about $4000, punished with 74 lashes or be imprisoned from three to six months.

Under the bill, certain professions such as policemen, farmers and herders are exempted from the law.
