It was in July last year that an employee at a Shell gas station in Finnsnes in Troms, Norway, was filmed when he killed some terns on the roof of the station.

The video of the event created strong reactions in social media, and the animal welfare organization NOAH decided to report the case.

Now the man who carried out the killings has been fined 20,000 kroner under criminal law for violation of Section 37 of the Law on animal welfare and Biodiversity Act section 15 and 75 .

If he does not pay the fine, he must spend 40 days in jail.
