Sunday, May 29th, in Irissarry at 9:59 p.m., shots were fired at piglets that were in a field along the departmental road. The parents of Patrick Dagorret (the owner of the farm) were alerted by the shots and saw several people run off to get into two nearby vehicles.
Patrick Dagorret, a breeder, called immediately to report that one of his two-month old piglets had died. The second was severely injured and had to be painfully returned to the farm.
The vet had to euthanize him because of his severe injuries. The x-rays showed the presence of shotgun powders," explains the breeder, who doesn't "understand what these individuals were searching for".
Patrick Dagorret explains that these piglets were a cross of two breeds, mangalica, and tawmorth and had just recently arrived at our farm. They stayed in the fields with the sheep.
After the gendarmes had reviewed the facts, the breeder filed a complaint about X to the gendarmerie in Irissarry on Tuesday, May 31. The Community of Brigades of Saint-Palais is leading the investigation.
