LThe wound slowly closes. VSIt takes time to heal, especially in this area! But Pleasure is better », breathes, relieved, Pascal Lami, from Hattencourt.

On the night of April 13 to 14, in a pasture located at the exit of the village, a few meters from the Lami home, Plaisir, their 18-year-old horse Serre, suffered strange injuries.

Attacking this part of the animal is very vicious because it is very painful and dangerous. And then it is known: a horse without its feet lets itself die

He had two large cuts, a good inch deep in the hollow of the pasterns of his front feet, explained, two days later, Carole, Pascal’s wife. Attacking this part of the animal is very vicious because it is very painful and dangerous. And then it is known: a horse without its feet lets itself die . »

Two other animals remained with Plaisir in this pasture. Another horse, Pablo, and the pony César. They are unharmed. “But they are more suspicious of humans. Unlike Plaisir who is much more easily approachable. Well, that was the case before these injuries. », underlines Pascal.

“Pleasure didn’t do it alone”

For the couple, these injuries can only be the work of a human hand. “ When we found him in this state, I went around the fence to check that he hadn’t gotten his feet caught in anything, but I didn’t find any blood or suspicious marks, except for one place where the fence cord had been cut », sighs Pascal.

For him, the injuries and this damage to the fence are proof that a person has entered the pasture. The veterinarian who came on Monday will confirm the couple’s suspicions. “ For her, it’s certain, Plaisir didn’t do this alone. It’s too clearadds Pascal. If we hadn’t seen anything, there was a risk of amputation, or worse. » Fortunately, today their horse is slowly recovering. “ But we will never again leave our animals at night in this pasture », Regrets Pascal.

The Hattencourt affair taken “very seriously” by the authorities

As soon as the article on Plaisir’s misfortunes appeared, the Lami couple received a visit from the gendarmes. “ They told me that they and the prefecture were taking the matter very seriously. », says Pascal. “ They did not want to relive the psychosis that had set in a few years ago after the Berny-en-Santerre affair », Estimates the owner of Plaisir who obviously filed a complaint.

Information taken, the investigation is “ ongoing » according to the gendarmerie, which confirms that it is paying increased vigilance to phenomena of animal abuse, particularly when it comes to horses. “ We are waiting for new information but given the sector’s liabilities, we remain vigilant », Comment soberly by the police.
