EVIL GAMES: Horse mutilations in France, animals eyes hacked-out as part of sadistic bone collecting challenge

A mare was found with her nose, ear, and one eye removed. Another case involved a horse which had his right ear cut off, one of his eyes gouged out and his genitals cut away.

ELIZABETH LITTLE: French police are hunting an evil group of criminals involved the brutal and barbaric mutilation of horses. Officers have not announced any suspects or motive, but believe the attacks could be part of a twisted fetish, sadistic ritual, or online “challenge”. At least 15 attacks on horses and donkeys have been reported across France, with the bodies left discarded and missing parts. The gruesome attacks date back to at least February this year but have increased in recent weeks, with at least five incidents reported since the start of the month…

A mare which had previously died of natural causes was found with its nose, ear, and one eye removed in the Jura region. Another case in Cortambert, a village in the central-eastern department of Saone-et-Loire, involved a horse which had its right ear cut off, one of its eyes gouged out and its genitals cut away. It came after a horse in the same region was stunned before having its eye gouged out and a piece of bone removed. The animal later died…

Police also said they had linked the latest horse mutilation to “about 15 other mysterious acts of torture and mutilations of live horses around France these last weeks.” All types of horses have fallen victim to the twisted attacked, as well as one donkey. Mutilation of an ear has been reported as a common factor, however no meat had been taken from the carcases…

A Paris police spokeswoman said there were similar cases between 2014 and 2016 and mutilations of horses had been reported in the past in Belgium and Germany… The attacks are not specific to a region, and have been reported across the east, west and north of the country…

The spokeswoman added: “We do not understand the motivation. Is it a satanic rite, insurance fraud, some macabre trophy hunt or an internet challenge?” “We don’t know. It is very traumatising”… Cruelty to animals is punishable in France with up to two years imprisonment and a maximum fine of 30,000 euros. SOURCE…
