A calf was found dead, the right ear cut off, and with wounds on the muzzle, in Seilhac in Corrèze.
The prosecution indicates that this discovery can not "yet be linked" to the cases of mutilation of horses.
A calf was found dead, the right ear cut off, and with wounds in the muzzle, in Seilhac (Corrèze), we learned Thursday from the Tulle prosecutor's office which "cannot yet link this discovery" with the mutilations of horses in France.
"Premature to conclude that this is a human intervention"
The 15-day-old calf, weighing around sixty kilos, which was in the meadow, was found on Wednesday afternoon.
He also had a major injury to his tongue.
The gendarmerie made the findings, supported by a cell of criminal identification technicians and a veterinarian.
According to the prosecution to an AFP correspondent, "it is premature to conclude that this is a human intervention. We cannot yet link this discovery with other investigations in France" on mutilations of horses .
200 investigations opened in the horse mutilation case
This is the first discovery in Corrèze of a case that could be related to the macabre series.
Since August, acts of mutilation mainly of horses have been reported all over the territory.
About 200 investigations have been opened but only about thirty cases are considered of human nature, according to the gendarmerie.
