Dogs, we all know, are man’s best friend. They are loyal, protect their owners as much as they can, and always love them no matter what. However, not everyone has the same sympathy for these pets and what happened in Lihus, in the Oise, is proof of this.
A despicable act
In this small village, a resident found one of her dogs “hanging from the beam”, after a day of work, on Saturday June 25, 2022. While she wanted to check if all her animals were indeed in the kennel, this woman realized that one was missing. This is his three-year-old malinois.
After noticing this absence, the woman hears a strange noise and subsequently manages to save another dog named Orus. He was rescued long before he suffocated to death. Unfortunately, his Malinois friend could not be saved.
Is it a revenge of its neighbors?
After finding her hanged dog, this resident of Lihus decided to break the silence through her Facebook account. She says that she put her suitcases in this small village with her dogs four years ago, her neighbors keep complaining. The reason given by the latter is none other than the barking of his dogs.
So, after several complaints filed with the town hall about her pets, the woman decided to place anti-bark collars on her dogs. On top of that, she also left them in their kennel. And this, whenever she and her husband are not at home. However, it seems that his neighbors did not want to be satisfied with these precautionary measures.
The latter were ready to take the most drastic measures to silence the canids. This resident of Lihus also revealed that before this fact, she had also already discovered many meatballs filled with nails that could seriously injure her dogs. In addition to this, the rear window of his car was also broken, which could be revenge from his neighbors.
After finding her dog hanged, the woman notably filed a complaint with the police on June 27, 2022, for an act of cruelty to an animal. The Beauvois public prosecutor’s office has also taken up the case. For its part, the publication of the owner of the dog has reacted to many people on Facebook, which is completely normal.
Abused dog seeks shelter
Since we are talking about cruelty to animals, the police of the Lagny / Chessy agglomeration police station seized an abused dog in Montévrain, Thursday April 14, 2022. It is in particular the Ani’Meaux association which alerted the police. Thus, when the latter took action, they found the animal in a cage.
According to several witnesses, Shadow never left his owner’s home. He lived in a balcony and is most often locked in a cage. He also didn’t eat enough and was often beaten up by the people he lived with. For information, Shadow is an American Staff only 11 months old. While dogs of this same breed weigh around 25 kg, Shadow is only 15 kg due to the abuse he has suffered.
According to the legal manager of Ani’Meaux, we found bone fragments under the hematoma in the poor animal and the fracture “at the level of the leg, from the kneecap to the top”. As a result, Shadow cannot walk normally.
Following all these discoveries, the association filed a complaint for act of cruelty on an animal against the owners of the dog. They had to be summoned and heard. Today, the dog is in good hands and is looking for a shelter where he can be showered with love.
“He gets along with dogs, cats, chickens and children of all ages. A dog’s love,” said Ani’Meaux.
If you think you are ready to give the love that Shadow had missed with its former owners, you can contact the association.
