Garbo, "security" dog in danger!

In a train on line 7 of the Paris metro, Garbo, a "security" dog, was bleeding profusely in the presence of the security guard who was in charge of it. One Voice takes the case and conducts the investigation.

Garbo, a sheepdog, suffered in silence from a serious injury, while the security guard was on watch. Flabbergasted, the passengers of the line 7 of the Paris metro intervened on February 21st, and alerted us.

A sea ​​of ​​blood

Direct witness to the scene, a traveller told us what she witnessed. When she saw the security guard and his dog on the train, she immediately noticed Garbo's agitation, the behaviour of the man pulling on the collar and a metallic smell of blood. And for good reason ... With a deep wound at the base of its tail and a flap of flesh hanging off, the dog seemed to have received a brutal blow at the rear of the train by means of a heavy object. Panting hard, pupils extremely dilated, the poor dog endured hell while a huge red puddle widened under its flanks ... The reaction from the guard? None, apart from aggression and vis-à-vis his dog facing the passengers who were worried. At the Riquet station, the witness sounded the alarm so that the dog was quickly taken care of. The driver then moved to the wagon ... Unbelievably, he reportedly stated that he was aware of the presence on board of an injured and relieved dog on his way to a rescue centre at the Villette.

The metro as an ambulance!

Was RATP really aware of the situation? Did they know that one of their "security" dogs had been injured, suffered from violence and was driven under such conditions to an assumed veterinarian? The day after the events, they spoke on their twitter account reassuring the public on the care of the dog and rejecting the responsibility of its chaotic transport on a subcontract security company. We immediately sent them an official letter. RATP told us to contact its legal department ... We will not stop there. This tragedy is indicative of the sordid exploitation of so-called "security" dogs, who have been overly coerced. In this case, we have started an investigation to find Garbo and help him. And we will obviously identify the culprit (s) in order to exercise justice!

J'espère de tout cœur que ce pauvre chien sera sauvé.
Je souhaite l’abolition de l'emploi de chien pour la sécurité, trop de cas identiques de maltraitance sur ces pauvres chiens qui ne comprennent pas pourquoi le travail fait, ils sont ainsi maltraités. De quel droit ces gens auraient le droit de vie ou de mort sur ces pauvres toutous. Je me force à penser que tous les cas ne sont pas identiques mais malheureusement cela arrive bien trop souvent. Tiens bon Garbo des humains eux compétents et aimants vont venir de délivrer de ce calvaire.
