Thursday April 14, 2022, police officers from the Lagny/Chessy agglomeration police station intervened to seize a dog in Montévrain, in Seine-et-Marne. Alerted by a complaint for an act of cruelty, filed by the Ani’Meaux association, they found Shadow, an 11-month-old American Staff, locked in a cage.

Shadow is now in the hands of the association. With the agreement of the Meaux Public Prosecutor’s Office, the animal was removed from its ownerswhose explanations did not convince the officers.

Given Shadow’s condition, the abuse was blatant for the association. Starving, heavy 15 kg instead of 25 kg for a Staff of his age, the dog presented the day of the seizure with a substantial bump on the top of the skull.

He has since been taken to a veterinarian, who has certified injuries. Jérôme Cordier, legal manager of the Ani’Meaux association, explains:

On the level of the head there are bone fragments under the hematoma and on the level of the leg, from the patella to the top, it is fractured. Today he walks with difficulty, we are waiting to know if he will be able to recover it.

If the association intervenes almost daily, this case appeals to them :

Given the size of the claws and according to the testimonies, it did not come out. He lived on a balcony, in an apartment, and in a cage. He was not fed enough and suffered regular beatings.
