From May 14, 2022Christelle has no news of her two dogs and a pussy who had been his companion for 17 years. All three have disappeared in a totally mysterious way on the night of May 13-14. Since that date, this inhabitant ofan isolated hamlet in Issé, near Châteaubriant (Loire-Atlantique), has multiplied the steps to try to find them. In vain.
So she tries one call for witnesses through the press.
Escape or abduction by dog thieves?
“I’m in a big artistic blur: have they been stolen?” did they escape? Christelle wonders before detailing how she discovered their disappearance.
This night was the first time he tried to fall asleep Orkan, a German Shepherd 3 years old (he will have 4 in August), and Sprow, a “Labrador Crusader” 6 years old, in the kennel she had just climbed on her land. “The kennel is leaning against the building of an old farmhouse (which is used for storage, ed.) Which is not locked,” she said.
The wooden door to the enclosure, however, had been carefully closed with a long bar and also “blocked with a wooden barrier held by a small freezer,” in order to prevent a leak in case, in repeated on the door, the bar does not fall apart. What had just happened a few days earlier, in the daytime.
The kennel had only been up since May 8, and it was the first time they had spent the night in it. The first time I put the dogs in, in a day, they escaped.
But Isséenne points out: “As my neighbors have pointed out to me, usually even when they leave my field, they always stay close to home.”
In addition, there is also the mystery Duchess, the 17-year-old pussy of Christelle. “It simply came to our notice then on May 14th. People told me she was probably out to hide and die… But I find the coincidence really unlikely: that it happens on the same night as my dogs disappear.
The neighbors’ little dog has also disappeared
The owner found, in the morning, the kennel door opened and the wooden fence on the ground, a good meter from the door. But she admits that she did not find any evidence that could prove the intervention of thieves. Hence the “artistic blur” mentioned.
“Of course I barked around 3 o’clock in the morning, like my neighbor, but not in a way that could alert me.” It was like barking at a foreign cat in my yard, for example.
What worries him nonetheless is this unusual total prolonged absence in her pets, and also a similar fact that happened this year right next to her house:
This winter, my neighbors experienced the same thing: their little dog suddenly disappeared. It often happens that he leaves their homes, but he always stays in the area, too.
Calls to witnesses through social networks and emails to town halls
After searching for the animals in the vicinity of the house, they posted social media search noticesand especially the Facebook groups dedicated to “Pet alerts”, “Pattes en cavale” and even “Information about the Châteaubriant & co route”, where Internet users regularly report animals in a state of disarray.
“I also posted this on the network L’entraide des Nantais, because I work in Nantes. And it works great. I am also in contact with the WAF association, which is creating a suiteA the disappearance of Sunny mugs in Finistèrevery relayed by the media in May ”.
Christelle also had “sent emails to about 40 town halls around Issé, in case my dogs were spotted. All my animals are identified (by chip and / or tattoo), ”she says.
The Isséenne also decided to file a complaint, four days after this triple disappearance. « I filed a complaint on May 18 with the Nozay Gendarmerie. ”
Demarchée par des médiums et «specialisti» dans comunication animals
But so far no one was able to send in the perfect solution, which is not strange. “On the other hand, I get regular calls or contacts from people who do animal communication (ie those who claim to be able to telepathically communicate with animals, ed.), even mediumsShe reports in disbelief. “I didn’t follow through because I don’t believe in those things at all,” she warns. “It simply came to our notice then sometimes quite anxious messagesShe laments.
She hopes that, as photos of her animals are relayed by a large number of people, she will be able to either get information or persuade potential thieves to separate dogs, which are too recognizable.
In the meantime, she has to deal with thatfeeling of helplessness left by this disappearanceeven if he still has “four cats and two horses.”
“My animals are always very present around me so thereit’s a hell of a messShe describes with emotion.
