The drama is produced Monday evening in the city center of Pordic, a town in the agglomeration of Saint-Brieuc, in the Côtes-d’Armor.
It was 8:30 p.m. when the barking of a Rottweiler annoyed the residents of a condominium.
One of them grabbed a knife, came out of his house and stabbed the dog nine times.
The owner of the animal was stabbed in the hand while trying to intervene.
The Rottweiler did not survive while his owner was taken to hospital where he underwent surgery.
As for the suspect, he was taken into custody and then transferred to a psychiatric hospital. On Tuesday, he returned to the cell but a doctor had to confirm that his state of health was compatible with police custody.
