The basics A new case of animal abuse during a birthday party near Tarbes in the Hautes-Pyrénées has just been denounced by journalist Hugo Clément.

This Monday, April 5th, Hugo Clément took to Instagram to denounce a new animal abuse case one evening. The facts would have taken place in the Hautes-Pyrénées near Tarbes. The journalist posted a short video that one of the participants posted in the story the day before yesterday.

In the pictures we see a young man grabbing a bird by a wing before throwing it into the air. Another one on the ground looks very bad.

Hugo Clément explains that he had the man whose birthday it was on the phone. “He assures me that this evening was from May 2018, but that the video was republished two days ago ‘in memory’ (…). He realizes that throwing birds into the air is and means abuse for me that it is ‘possible’ that someone has “kicked” the pigeon that we see on the ground (…) He nevertheless assures that the birds were all “released the next day” and that “none died the aftermath of the evening “. But “impossible to verify,” complains the journalist.
