Belgium: a pensioner slaughters the little dog he had asked for to keep him company
A 71-year-old pensioner living in Belgium killed Pantoufle, a young dog he had just been offered to fight against his loneliness.
The story is captivating. A 71-year-old Belgian pensioner slit the throat of a small dog he had just picked up a few hours earlier, after requesting it on the social networks.
Living independently in a service residence in Wanze, but hardly seeing his family or friends, the septuagenarian had launched an appeal on the net to find a new four-legged companion. The previous one had just died, after ten years by his side, told South Info.
The dog slaughtered the same evening
Touched by the loneliness of the pensioner, a couple had responded to his request. The Good Samaritans had offered to introduce her to Pantoufle, a 4-year-old bichon. Traveling a hundred kilometers, they had offered him in stride. A first meeting also filmed by our colleagues.
But now, the beautiful story quickly turned to horror. The same evening, while Pantoufle kept barking, the septuagenarian broke down. He grabbed a knife and cut the bichon’s throat. The poor beast was found the next morning, in agony, before dying.
Calling to ask about the young dog, the former owners were alerted to the tragic news. They then drove back to recover the body and bury it at home.
A complaint is expected to be filed and legal action is expected.
