Check out my news
Since May 14, 2022Christelle had no news of him two dogs and a cat who was his partner for 17 years. The three have mysteriously lost on the night of May 13 to 14. Since that date, it has been a resident ofa remote village of Issé, near Châteaubriant (Loire-Atlantique), multiplied the steps to try to find them. In vain.
So he tried a calling witnesses by the press.
Running away or kidnapping dog thieves?
“I’m in a big artistic blur: were they stolen? Did they escape? Christelle asked before detailing how she discovered their disappearance.
That night was the first time he tried to sleep Orkan, a German Shepherd 3 years (he will be 4 on August), and Maya, a “Labrador cross” 6 years old, in the kennel he had just set up on his property. “The kennel was supported by the construction of an old farmhouse (which it used for storage, editor’s note) that was not locked,” he explained.
The wooden door to the enclosure, however, is tightly closed by a tall bar and is also “blocked by a wooden barrier held in place by a small freezer”, to prevent someone from running if it is possible, by repeatedly leaning on the door, the bar cannot be recovered. That happened just a few days ago, in the sun.
The kennel has only been set up since May 8 and this is the first time they have spent the night of it. The first time I put the dogs on it, in the sun, they escaped.
But Isséenne says: “As my neighbors taught me, usually, even when they leave my land, they always stay close to home”.
Plus, there’s also 17 -year -old cat Duchess mystery by Christine. “I realized, on the day of May 14, that he was also missing. People told me he had to hide to die… But I found that coincidence was never possible: that it happened the same night as my dogs disappeared ”.
The neighbors’ little dog also disappeared.
Found by owner in the morning, the kennel door is open and the wooden fence on the ground, a good yard from the door. But he admitted he did not find any clues to prove the thieves ’interference. So “artistic blur” is mentioned.
“I hear barks around 3 in the morning, like my neighbor, but not in a way that alerts me. It barks like when a foreign cat passes by my land, for example…”.
However, his concern is this unusual long loss of his animals, and also a similar event that took place this year right next to his house:
This winter, my neighbors experienced the same thing: their little dog suddenly disappeared. He would always leave their house but he would also always stay.
Calls for witnesses through social networks and emails to municipalities
After finding his pets around his house, he posted immediately wanted notifications on social networksand especially dedicated Facebook groups such as “Pet ALERT”, “Pattes en cavale” and even “Information de la route Châteaubriant & co”, where Internet users regularly report stray animals.
“I also posted it on the L’entraide des Nantais network, because I work in Nantes. And it went well. I also met with the WAF association that was created afterthere loss of dog Sunny in Finistèrewas heavily relayed by the media in May ”.
Christelle says that she too “sent letters to about 40 town halls around Issé, in case my dogs are found. All my animals are identified (by chip and/or tattoo) ”, he specified.
Isséenne also decided to file a complaint, four days after this triple loss. “ I filed a complaint on May 18 with the gendarmerie in Nozay ”.
Approached by mediums and “specialists” in animal communication
But so far, none of his steps have yielded even the slightest convincing result. “On the other hand, I always get calls or contacts from people making animal communication (ie who claims to be able to communicate telepathically with animals, editor’s note), even mediums“, he reports, can’t believe it.” I didn’t follow up because I never believed in these things, “he warned.” But it was sometimes messages that provoke anxiety“, She cried.
He hopes that, because photos of his animals are passed on to many people, he can get the information or persuade potential thieves to break up with the dogs, which is very recognizable.
In the meantime, he has to face itfeelings of helplessness can be left with this lossalthough he still had “four cats and two horses”.
“My animals are always around me so it’s thereit’s a hell of a vacuum“, he describes with emotion.
