My neighbours told me to stop my dog barking – I was horrified when I came home to find him HANGED | The Sun

A HORRIFIED mum has described how she came home to find her dog hanged after his barking sparked a row with neighbours.

Pauline Joly has described how she returned home to find her beloved pet Orus hanging from a beam by a choke collar.

She took to Facebook to warn of the serious incident that almost cost her much-loved Malinois pooch.

The young mum explained she bought a property in the small village of Lihus, France, where she moved in with her young family and two dogs, four years ago.

"Since our arrival in the village, the neighbours have been complaining about my dogs barking when we are away," said Joly.

The young woman pointed out that, while there are a dozen dogs in the village of just under 415 inhabitants, her two pooches seem to "bother the most".

Before the alleged sadistic act last Saturday, Joly said the family had faced several other apparent attempts to scare them.

And this including finding her rear car pane broken and discovering meatballs filled with nails and screws she believe were intended for her dogs.

Following these incidents, the village's Mayor suggested Joly found a solution to the problem,

So the couple built two kennels to leave the dogs when they were out, as well as brought anti-barking collars.

But then, the neighbourhood dispute took a horrifying turn for the worse.

"Coming home from work, I get into my yard and realise that all of the doors to my outdoor buildings are open and that one of my dogs is missing from his kennel," she explained.

"Panicked, I look for the dog, enter the building next to the dog kennels and I discover my unconscious dog having from a beam with a choke collar."

After untying Orus "at a mad pace for fear that he will not survive this act of cruelty", Joly stayed with her pet until he thankfully regained consciousness.

"I am still amazed by what happened. I am shocked."

Paramilitary police officers – the Gendarmes – arrived at the scene, alongside a village official.

Joly alleged she was then shockingly told: "You should get rid of your dogs", .

"People are crazy: they break into my house to hang my dog. The day my two-year old daughter is going to play in the yard and makes too much noise, will they try to hang her too?" the mum asked.

Joly lodged a complaint for act of cruelty to an animal.

Caroline Tharot, Prosecutor at the Beauvais Courthouse told The Sun Online: "A complaint was filed on June 27, and investigations are underway to confirm or not the veracity of the allegations."

On 19 June, a number of complaints about the dogs barking all night had been filed with the Mairie, the City Hall.

Thierry Levasseur, the Mayor, confirmed having received numerous complaints over the last four years.

The Mayor condemned the "unpardonable" act against Joly's dog.
