A dog left for several days on a balcony without water or food in the middle of a heat wave in Nice

A resident of Nice (Alpes-Maritimes) was arrested and taken into custody for “possession of a categorized dog without declaration, lack of insurance and voluntary abandonment of a pet”. The police had been warned by the association Action animal protection, itself alerted by witnesses, says Nice morning this Friday, August 5, 2022.

The neighbors provided him with water

Kpone, a 4-year-old Rottweiler-type dog, spent entire days locked up on the balcony of the apartment, littered with his droppings. In this space in full sun where the temperature was close to 40° C, he had neither water nor food. Neighbors, shocked by the fate of the animal, lowered buckets of water to it using a rope from the floor above, explains the daily.

They posted a video on social networks to denounce the behavior of the owner. “It was a habit for him to store his dog on the balconydenounced the president of the association, quoted by our colleagues. The neighborhood told us that he would be a dog handler. His dog is therefore a work accessory that he “puts away” when he no longer needs it. »

The man faces three years in prison and a fine of €45,000.
