Puppy died after being attacked by three dogs

Sunday morning, Lucie Gauthier was walking her dog Betty Boop, on a leash, when she saw two American bulldogs and a pit bull jump on her yorkie.

They arrived suddenly. I heard tears of death. I tried to pull the rope, to remove it, but I couldn’t. I failed in my tasksaid Lucie Gauthier, weeping in her heart.

To the shock of seeing her dog attacked, Lucie Gauthier fell and was taken to hospital. He was diagnosed with a concussion.

Betty Boop broke her ribs and he lost air, it came out of the holes [des morsures] , says Trifluvienne, with a lot of emotion in her voice. Betty Boop died of her injuries hours after the attack on Sunday.

Everything is ruined. That’s what I call doggie Sunday morning »

A broken patio door

The three dogs that attacked the Yorkie belonged to Lucie Gauthier’s neighbor, Véronique Peeters.

When the attack happened on Sunday, Véronique Peeters was not at home. He went out for a task a few steps from his house, but the door to his patio was not locked.

15 minutes. Quand je suis revenue et qu’un voisin m’a raconté ce qui s’est passé, j’ai été traumatisée “,”text”:”Ma porte-patio ne se barre pas. Je suis obligée de mettre un bâton de bois. Mes chiens étaient à l’intérieur hier et je suis partie15 minutes. Quand je suis revenue et qu’un voisin m’a raconté ce qui s’est passé, j’ai été traumatisée “}}”>The door to my patio could not be locked. I have to put a wooden stick. My dogs were still inside and I left in 15 minutes. When I came back a neighbor told me what had happened, that I was traumatized recalled Véronique Peeters, with tears in her eyes.

According to Véronique Peeters, only one of her three dogs attacked Betty Boop. Even if he didn’t witness the attack, he believes it was his oldest dog, Picarro, a 12-year-old pit bull, who bit the Yorkie after escaping from the apartment.

Arriving on Radio-Canada, the owner of the building where Véronique Peeters lives, Martin Darveau, confirmed that he was unaware that the patio door was defective. He was simply warned to change the mosquito net and he refused to do so, because, according to him, with three big dogs, it had to be done again.

5 ans. Il a aussi été piqué par une tique. Il a pris de la médication, on l’a arrêté, puis on l’a recommencé il y a quelques jours. Je ne sais pas si c’est ça qui a pu le perturber au point de s’attaquer à un chien. Je ne comprends pas. En12 ans, il a juste donné des bisous toute sa vie “,”text”:”Picarro a lui-même été mordu quand il avait5 ans. Il a aussi été piqué par une tique. Il a pris de la médication, on l’a arrêté, puis on l’a recommencé il y a quelques jours. Je ne sais pas si c’est ça qui a pu le perturber au point de s’attaquer à un chien. Je ne comprends pas. En12 ans, il a juste donné des bisous toute sa vie “}}”>Picarro himself was bitten when he was 5 years old. He was also bitten by a detective. He took medicine, we stopped him, then we started him again a few days later. I don’t know if that’s what disturbed him to the point of attacking a dog. I don’t understand. For 12 years he had only given kisses all his life said Véronique Peeters.

Véronique Peeters ’other two dogs are American bulldogs. Every night, he claims to go for a walk with each of his three dogs.

I intended to hide Picarro until he died, but would it make sense to keep a dog a little too small? I don’t know. »

The owner of the three dogs said he was devastated by the events. He still hopes not to lose custody of his three dogs, especially my baby, the youngest, he is salvageable he reasoned.

However, he assured that he would respect the opinions of professionals on this matter and he knew that his pit bull was in danger of being euthanized. This is what Lucie Gauthier is asking for.

I will strike the heap

Betty Boop’s owner has been scared of three dogs for some time, as she can always see them in the front enclosure built by Véronique Peeters.

Neighbors also told Radio-Canada they were concerned about the security of the enclosure.

Previously, former owner Patrick Charlebois, had received notices of non-compliance with the enclosure from the City, but the situation was never resolved, because the tenant did not cooperate, he said.

Lucie Gauthier plans to file a complaint with the police. The law of houses is two dogs and three cats. I want to get rid of three dogs, get rid of the fence. I know he’s hurt too, but his pain is worth it to me claim by Lucie Gauthier.

He requested the euthanasia of the tenant’s three dogs and considered that pit bulls should be banned.

One who lost his dog in the last few hours wants to change the laws and believes the City of Trois-Rivières has failed in its responsibilities by accepting the enclosure and Véronique Peeters ’three dogs.

He requested a meeting with Trois-Rivières mayor Jean Lamarche.

The file will be transferred to the Society for the Protection of Animals. A request to quarantine the biting dog will be sent to the tenant while awaiting a behavioral review by veterinarians.

After that, the report of the expert who will decide the fate of the dog will be forwarded to the City.

The enclosure can be broken

The City of Trois-Rivières says it has not received any complaints about the situation that has dominated Véronique Peeters. Therefore, according to the City, there is no way to know if there is an illegal enclosure in front of the house.

However, this type of installation is prohibited. So there must be an intervention that can lead to the breaking of the enclosure.

The City added that no permission was requested for the installation.
