According to the News Ltd website, 23-year-old German tourist Robert Alvincz was fined 5500 yuan for killing a seagull in Sydney and kicking the body of the seagull into the air in front of two frightened children.

Erwinz told Judge Julie Huber in Waverley Local Court that he was unable to pay the fine. Yesterday, Erwinz admitted to torturing and beating animals and causing their deaths, and using offensive language.

The court learned that on December 12, two girls, 21 and 6 years old, had a picnic with their mother at Bondi Beach Park in Sydney. During this period, about 9-20 seagulls stayed on the grass. Elvins ran towards the seagulls and kicked one of them like a football. The wounded seagull's eyes bleed and fell near the two girls. The two girls were so frightened that they burst into tears.

According to the facts presented to the court by the police, the girl’s mother dropped the body of the seagull into the trash can and confronted Erwinz. But the 23-year-old tourist just smiled and ignored her. The girl's mother then reported the incident to the police, who arrested Erwinz.

Elvins said in court yesterday that he had worked as a banana picker in Australia. He was not a social person and was rather shy. In the past 6 months, he has had a difficult time in Australia. Judge Hubert stated that since Erwinz is about to return to Germany, other punishments such as a compliance order do not apply. In the end, she sentenced Erwinz to a fine of 5500 yuan.

However, Erwinz said he was unable to pay the fine. A spokeswoman for the NSW Attorney General said that Elvins can leave Australia without paying a fine because the Australian government will not prevent a foreigner from leaving due to unpaid fines.

Erwinz was originally scheduled to fly back to Germany on December 12 last year, but he was delayed due to his appearance in court.
