New hunting accident in the Hérault. The victim is a dog.
Not a month goes by without a new hunting accident being recorded.
It is this time the department of Hérault which is affected, and more precisely the village of Nissan-lez-Enzerune, located 11 kilometers south-west of Béziers.
This rural town of around 4,000 souls was indeed the scene of a very unfortunate news story on Sunday, January 30, when a hunter seriously injured a dog, while the animal was on private property.

A hunter nearly killed a dog while the animal was on private property
According to the website Actu.frthe owner of the dog was at home when he heard several shots, which would have been fired by a hunter who was less than 70 meters from his home.
If one can easily think that these rifle shots or rifle shots were involuntary, they were all the same fired in the direction of private property, which, if not prohibited, is very dangerous.
Named Beethoven, the poor animal received many lead shots and was placed in intensive care in a veterinary clinic.

Patrick, his master, does not lose his temper.
« Not only did he (the hunter’s note) shoot my dog, which cannot be confused with either a rabbit or a boar, but he was also at my house “, deplores the person concerned in the columns of the Free lunch.
Already sad and distraught in the face of this tragedy, the latter finds himself more cornered by the health costs necessary for his companion.
« The tragedy is that I love my dog and there, I don’t know if I’m going to save him. Nor even if I will manage to pay the veterinarian “, he laments thus.
Faced with the urgency of the situation, the owner of Beethoven – who filed a complaint – opened a jackpot online on Leetchi, appealing to the solidarity of Internet users.
At the time of writing these few lines, it has already collected more than 4,000 euros. A sum beyond the expectations of Patrick who has also received many messages of support.
