The streets of Troyes in Northern France are usually pretty tranquil so when passers-by hear a frantic whining and crying coming from a garage – they know they have to act.
They realise that an animal is trapped inside and, with no way to get the creature out without trespassing on private property, decide to contact the local police.
A life-saving arrival
Thankfully, the police quickly obtained the necessary authorisation to intervene and go on site to break down the garage door.
Once inside, they’re plunged into shock. The place is entirely in the darkness and covered with waste. A Belgian Shepherd dog is tied to the ceiling by a rope, which means the poor pup cannot move.
A desperate dog
Not just that, he has no food or water and is crying in desperation.
Without wasting a second, police officers untie the poor animal and offer him lots of love and attention before taking him to their car, to start a new life.
Entravé par une longe dans le noir, enfermé parmi les détritus dans un garage, ce jeune chien a été sauvé par la #PoliceMunicipale #Troyes et @PoliceNat10. Son propriétaire devra répondre de mauvais traitements à animal. pic.twitter.com/Lpr21eXLKT— Police Nationale 10 (@PoliceNat10) April 30, 2021
Police are now hunting for the poor pup’s former owner who will have to answer for their actions in court.
