Horses killed in fire at IENA, Avenches

Such sad news. 7 fires in all were reported around the area that night. Either deliberate acts or drunken kids methinks.

Suspect being held. Seems he's a volunteer fireman.

Re: Horses killed in fire at IENA, Avenches

Horrible
I have good memories of the National Equestrian Centre at Avenches, having joined a Driving Event Marathon (as a groom on the back) years ago. Lots of fun, speed and mud

Hope they catch them all and sentence them severely.

Re: Horses killed in fire at IENA, Avenches

Not sure if the stork colony down there was affected as well. I know that several pairs nest on the roofs of the buildings at IENA. Will be a shame if any lost their chicks due to the fire as I don't think they're quite old enough to fly properly yet.

Re: Horses killed in fire at IENA, Avenches

There's been a lot of farm fires in the Fribourg area recently, especially in the Broye region .

Re: Horses killed in fire at IENA, Avenches

What drives people to do such acts of mindless cruelty?

I have seen experts on TV saying that serial killers begin with being extremely cruel to animals...

Re: Horses killed in fire at IENA, Avenches

Apparently the farmes have now started patrolling themselves in the night. Hope all act in reason.


I will be down in the IENA with my horse in 10days for 1 night, just hope that they catch the person before or that nothing happens that night. Am slightly nervous about leaving my horse there in the wood boxes.

Re: Horses killed in fire at IENA, Avenches

njusta83, I would think/hope that IENA are taking their own precautions. After all they have a lot of events going on there at this time of the year.

Re: Horses killed in fire at IENA, Avenches

A suspect has been arrested in connection with fires in Dompierre and Domdidier, but it's not stated whether they are thought to be responsible for the fire at IENA or not.

Seems it might be the first suspect after all.

But supposedly he was under arrest when the barn fires happened? Or is this another volunteer fireman?
