In a state of advanced thinness
The two Shitzu were discovered in March 2021, in Yvetot, following a report from the neighborhood. They lacked care, food and water. They were, according to the investigator appointed by the association for the defense of animal rights Stéphane Lamart, in a state of advanced thinness, with parasites and glued hair. They lived in a garden filled with excrement and urine and had no basket or blanket.
The corpse of a third dog
Since the death of his wife, the man left the dogs permanently outside. The body of a third dog was found, buried in the garden. The Rouen court also ordered the confiscation of the two dogs and their handing over to the Stéphane Lamart association. On civil interests, he will have to pay the association €500 in damages and interest and €300 for legal costs.
