Ein jüdisches Gericht hat einen Hund zum Tode durch Steinigung verurteilt, weil sie befürcheten, er sei eine Reinkarnation eines toten Anwalts, der vor 20 Jahren das Gericht beleidigte. What?

Several weeks ago, a large dog entered the Monetary Affairs Court near the ultra-Orthodox neighbourhood of Mea Shearim.

The dog scared the court's visitors and, to their surprise, refused to leave even after they attempted to drive him away. One of the judges suddenly recalled that about 20 years ago, a famous secular lawyer who insulted the court was cursed by the panel of judges, who wished that his spirit would move on to the body of a dog (considered an impure animal by Halacha). The lawyer passed away several years ago.

Still offended, one of the judges sentenced the poor animal to death by stoning, recruiting the neighbourhood's children to carry out the order. Luckily, the dog managed to escape.

Dog sentenced to death by stoning (via Arbroath), Telegraph: Jewish court sentences dog to death by stoning

[update] Von Judeopundit:

I should make it clear that there are no stoning sentences in our times in Jewish law. In ancient times an animal could be sentenced to stoning for killing a person and in certain other cases, but there is currently no such thing. Also, the BBC article states "Dogs are often considered impure animals in traditional Judaism" and some of the other articles say something similar. What does it mean? If you refer to a dog as a "beheima tameiah"--an "impure animal"--you are basically stating that dog meat is not kosher. So the claim of an actual stoning "sentence" was highly suspect to begin with and it is being spread by journalists who are, at best, only vaguely aware talking about.
