A group of French carp anglers doing a social with their club on the night stretch at Jugon-les-Lacs (Dept. 22) have been ruthlessly attacked by a group of Romanians this weekend.

Apparently tensions between the two groups already during began daytime when the Romanians tried poaching some fish at the lake, leading to a major disagreement with the carp anglers present. After having already returned in group but stopped by the police who were yet present, at night, three Romanians silently returned armed with iron bars, sticks with needles and pins, and an aggressive dog, jumping on their sleeping victim, Mr Gaetan Portier, president of the club. Several carp anglers were injured (mostly bruised), Gaetan’s wife said to local media, but Gaetan himself still is in hospital fighting not to lose his eye. And even if he doesn’t, it still remains quite unpredictable if his sight will ever recover.

Again according to first hand witnesses we received, two carp anglers who knocked out two of Gaetan’s aggressors now risk serious prosecution as these two needed to be hospitalised as well. Can you believe this?

For those who care, please send your wishes to Gaetan himself on his FB profile!
