According to our colleagues from France 3, yesterday afternoon, during a check in a dog farm in the town of Vidaillat, in Creuse, two gendarmes were injured. When the representatives of the Departmental Directorate for the Protection of Populations (formerly the Directorate of Veterinary Services) request access to another part of the farm, the owner refuses this control.
The owner then refuses this check and he flees in his vehicle and hits two gendarmerie officers who were supervising the operation.
Transferred to the Guéret Hospital Center for control examinations, their vital prognosis is not engaged.
This Thursday evening, the Minister of the Interior supported the two injured gendarmes on social networks.
France 3 specifies that a large-scale system has been put in place: “All the soldiers of the department have been deployed as well as a helicopter from the gendarmerie to try to find this person”.
The public prosecutor of Guéret confirms that an investigation has been opened for attempted homicide of a person holding public authority.
Full support for the two injured gendarmes, one of whom is still hospitalized, following a refusal to comply this afternoon in the Creuse.
