Without the mobilization of internet users, the local population and the police, Volt might not have been found. But thanks to this beautiful chain of solidarity, the Bulldog is back home.
On February 26, 2022, Volt was kidnapped in the city of Ostwald, in the Grand Est region. According to the neighborhood who quickly spotted the scene, a couple sniffed around the dog before it disappeared. The animal’s owner immediately filed a complaint and reported the disappearance on Facebook, notably promising a reward of 1,000 euros to whoever found his four-legged friend.
Local residents provided valuable details to the survey, while internet users massively shared the search message on social networks. And finally, thanks to this strong mobilization, the bulldog was found this Thursday, March 3, by a hiker at Lac Achard, less than 5 kilometers from the site of the kidnapping.
The municipal police, who were in charge of the case for several days, were on site and were able to recover the animal. The latter was identified thanks to his chip. “Since we were on patrol in the area, we went straight to this person to pick up the dog and return it to its owner”the agent explained to: West France†
A great outpouring of solidarity that offers this dog and his owner a happy ending.
