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.

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.

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.
