The animal died after bathing in Neuchâtel. Everything indicates that microorganisms loaded with neurotoxins are the cause, as in 2020.
Since this weekend, along the Neuchâtel coast, security officers have been asking canine owners not to let their animals bathe or drink in the lake as long as the temperatures remain so high and the shores calm. In question: the death of a dog on Saturday morning on a beach in Neuchâtel, fifteen minutes after getting out of the water, our colleagues from “ArcInfo” reported on Monday.
What was suspected is now obvious: cyanobacteria rising from the bottom of the lake due to the current heat wave are the cause of this death. “We are convinced that this dog has swallowed it, confirms the cantonal veterinarian of Neuchâtel, Pierre-François Gobat. We know he went into convulsions after 7-8 minutes.” In addition, large clusters of these blue-green microorganisms were seen visually just before the mouth of the Areuse, eight kilometers as the crow flies from the scene of the tragedy.
