They had been locked up – some of them in total darkness – in a 75 year-old woman's home. A neighbour alerted the foundation, which visited the property before filing an official complaint.

 

Several dogs had been left without food or water, while the cats were shut up in the basement. Two dead kittens were found. Claudine Caniaux, who headed the inquiry, said:

 

Before I even entered the property I noticed a revolting smell. The house was absolutely filthy, and every surface was covered with animal faeces.

The woman, aged 75, has been declared incompetent. An operation to evacuate the animals was carried out on the 20th of April, with members of the Brigitte Bardot Foundation present.
