Since the tragedy, Sandrine Adam has been searching for answers about the dogs that attacked her dachshund. The man who walked the two Rottweilers was not the owner, and the two mastiffs were not held in leash or muzzle. “I want to condemn the fact that Category 2 dogs in the city are unpunished without a leash and without a muzzle, and that these Rottweilers pose a danger to humans but also to other pets,” Pathusienne posted on Facebook.

It was after a report from Dammartin-en-Goële’s gendarmes who arrived at the scene that she was able to lodge a complaint in Saint-Soupplets.

City Hall can act

They must therefore be insured, wear a muzzle and be kept on a short leash, ”he explains Severine Hatte of the association of Poilus d’Oissery. According to Act of 6 January 1999, a mayor may “prescribe the owner or guardian of this animal to take measures to prevent the danger”. The animals of category 1 and 2 must be registered at City Hall. Following a similar incident in March last year, the mayor of Saint-Mard completely banned dogs without leashes in the city.

Sandrine believes that in Saint-Pathus, the mayor does not act enough in relation to dangerous dogs: “I’m waiting for him to set up something like behavior tests or for the list of identified dogs to be available”. On July 15, City Hall reminded that dog owners should keep them on a leash and that the most dangerous should be mouth-tied.
