Some of them must have a bit of knowledge. Having said that many horses I know would approach anyone to see if they had a Polo.

Another article from France Bleu Perigord this evening reporting suspicious people in a field near Corgnac sur l'Isle over the weekend and a horse with an odd injury. Worrying.
Oh no! I have to look it up but we are fairly close to the Isle and I pass so may horses nearby

It's a good bit further north. I hadn't realised just quite how long L'Isle was! Corgnac is about half an hour from us.

Wow I hadn't realised either! Well over an hour north of us!

Some comments on these injuries to horses from a vet at Nantes veterinary school who is responsible for equine emergencies at the school's clinic.
Probably doesn't tell you much that you don't already know but valuable nonetheless.

The attacks continue in my area, one reported pretty much every day, finally on Sunday one was recorded by 4 CCTV cameras, 2 individuals in the first vehicle tried to cut through the gate padlock without success then another voiture bélier arrived with 2 more wrong'uns, there was a horse and a donkey in the field, the horse evaded them and they cut a section off the donkeys tail.

I doubt that you can access the Courrier Picard article so try google.fr'ing "ânesse mutilée Margny-sur-Matz"

It sounds to me like there are definitely some copy cat crimes occurring, I would think that the ‘less ‘ severe ones are the copies

Most of the ones that have been reported around here have sounded like local idiots at play or possibly règlement des comptes, lets hope that Darwin comes into play and one or more of them get kicked to death in the confines of a box.

The use of drones to case properties for/with horses is not uncommon prior to these recent attacks. A large horse stud not far from us evidently had 5 drones flying overhead last week.

Keep your ears and eyes open for drones in your area.

I'll be manning the ack-ack post with a few of the local chasse.

Staff at the stud evidently tried to shoot the drones down, but didn't manage to. Let's hope your chasseurs are more skilled.
