According to information reported by Actu.frA deplorable event shook France, and in particular the village of Monjavoult in the Oise region.
On Sunday May 7, 2023, a motorist from Monjavoult, a village perched high in the French Vexin region, discovered a severely mistreated dog on a busy road between the town center and Valécourt. The two-year-old Staffie appeared to be in an appalling state.
The resident took the animal in and was appalled by the cruelty inflicted on the dog. Its skull had been horribly burned with acid, and its eyelids had been cut off.
News of this inhumane act quickly reached the media. On May 16, the story was highlighted on Cyril Hanouna's prime-time show "Touche pas à mon poste" on C8. The cameras of France 2 had also captured the poor animal's pitiful state.
The case has thus mobilized public attention in the hope of gathering testimonies that could help identify those responsible for this barbaric act. Despite a complaint filed with the Chaumont-en-Vexin gendarmerie and an investigation initiated by the Beauvais public prosecutor's office, the question of who could have committed such an act remains unanswered for the time being.
Despite this horror, the dog was able to count on the precious help of the Monjavoult resident, supported by the municipality.
A new home for the abused dog
The dog was rushed to the vet. There, it was revealed that the perpetrator of this cruelty had even attempted to sew up the mutilated eyelids, causing the animal possible permanent blindness. After medical treatment, the dog was entrusted to Élodie Sialelli, the town hall secretary.
Although disturbed by the situation, Élodie tried to welcome the dog into her home, but unfortunately, interaction with her other pets was not positive. As a result, the animal was placed in the care of Fondation Assistance aux Animaux for the duration of its convalescence.
According to actu.fr, a foster home in Monjavoult has already been found for the dog, whom he will join as soon as he leaves the Foundation.
Meanwhile, investigators are working hard to identify the perpetrator of these acts of cruelty. If you have any relevant information, or have witnessed events that could help solve this case, please contact the Chaumont-en-Vexin gendarmerie at 03 44 47 55 17.
