As the Eid-al-Adha and Yom Kippur holidays approach, the prefecture calls on educational farms to be cautious. Because the risk of animal theft is very real.

The letter was sent on August 7 to all owners of sheep, goats and poultry in the Hauts-de-Seine. The departmental directorate for the protection of populations (DDPP) asks them for “the greatest vigilance” vis-à-vis the risk of animal theft before the religious holidays of Eid al Adha and Yom Kippur in September.

The DDPP invites owners "to implement the necessary means" to deal with possible theft, and to immediately notify its services if the facts are proven. "It's prevention," explains Patrick Drouet, director of the Hauts-de-Seine DDPP. Owners are asked not to let the animals roam, because malicious people could try to capture them with a view to carrying out clandestine slaughter. »

On the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha, which will take place this year at the beginning of September, the rite consists in effect of sacrificing a “herd animal”, most often a sheep. On the eve of the Jewish holiday of Yom Kippur, which falls on September 29, a white chicken is sacrificed.

Measures taken at the Chanteraines farm

In the Hauts-de-Seine, the vast majority of chickens and sheep are found in seven educational farms that counts the department. Like at the Prairie du Moulin Joly, in Colombes. “It's a good initiative, says Laurent Senftleben, head of the urban ecology sector at the city of Colombes. But we were careful upstream, choosing to acquire goats rather than sheep, which are more often the target of theft. »

The site, already protected by cameras, is however not subject to special surveillance before these two religious holidays. "There is already security regularly set up in the evening, throughout the year", specifies the manager.

A the Chanteraines farm, managed by the departmental council in Gennevilliers, specific measures are however put in place during this period. “The sheep are systematically sheltered, every night, inside, like poultry which are sheltered throughout the year”, we explain to the county council.

Because the risk is very real. In 2013, departmental security investigators uncovered trafficking in stolen sheep in a Roma camp in Châtenay-Malabry. Some 200 animals had been stolen and were resold illegally, between 100 and 150 € per head. That's to say half less than the prices they can fetch in commerce at the time of Eid al-Adha.

    The Jews steal chickens for Yom Kippur as they once kidnapped Christian children to bleed them to make matzah? No kidding ! As always, you have to stigmatize the Jews so as not to stigmatize the Muslims, disgusting!

    I'm disgusted. Twice more so as not to stigmatize Muslims, it seems necessary for the authorities to compensate for this really real warning for sheep thieves, by adding a Jewish holiday, in this case Yom Kippur, (a holiday where we don't eat sheep or anything else, since it is honored by a 25-hour fast) so as not to shock the Muslim community.

    This open and assumed anti-Semitism, which no longer hides and which acts with complete impunity, in our media and no longer only in the interloping meanders of the Internet, leads us to become aware of what is currently going on (drama)...Let's take a lesson from the story…
