The initial response of the Mayor of Luçon, as reported in the press, gave the impression that he was not treating the matter seriously. This lead to some individuals creating petitions and a silent demonstration being held outside the town hall at 14h00 on Moday (23/9). The Mayor of Luçon invited concerned associations for the protection of animals to a meeting at the same time. NALA attended this meeting.

The press turned up... the gendarmes didn't. So we explained everything to them and eventually went our separate ways home. Later we learnt that although the President of the Com-Com claimed that he was too busy to see us because of other meetings he could spare about an hour for an ad hoc meeting with the press.
The various associations and citizens investigating this case met last weekend to take stock and identify future actions.
Saturday, October 12, a march is organized by a couple of citizens in memory and honour of all animals killed under bad conditions in animal pounds in France and also to seek the strengthening of laws on animal protection. Departure at 10.30 AM from the pound of Luçon.
