A dog that repeatedly entered a soccer field in Serbia on February 5 was “shown” the red card and taken off the field by the referee.
According to local reports, the dog interrupted a friendly match between Serbian second division Radnicki 1923 Kragujevac and Kolubara Lazarevac almost four times.
In a now viral picture originally posted by Sportski žurnal, a Serbian sports daily shows that referee Marko Ivkovic shows the dog a red card on which the players were being watched.
Look over here:

Bullshit call. Hopefully the league will blame that ref. Time to see real punishments.
