Warsaw - A 42-year-old Pole was on Tuesday jailed for eight months for torturing and killing his wife's dog, the Polish news agency PAP reported.

"Animal cruelty is still considered in Poland as a lower-level offence. That has to change," Rafal Sadowski, the trial judge in the northern town of Torun, wrote in his ruling, PAP said.

Neighbours had reportedly seen the man inflict regular beatings on his wife's three-year-old mongrel.

Neighbours later found the dog's body in a waste bin and called police.
