A description of the experience
Professor Ernesto Bozzano - The parapsychological manifestations of animals - 130 cases proving animal mediumistic abilities
Cases 73, 74 and 75. - Mrs. Carita Borderieux, currently Editor of the journal Psychica, published in the Journal of Scientific and Moral Issues in Spiritism, 1918, page 136, an article on presentiments in animals. I extracted these three cases that she collected herself:
One of my friends lived in Neuilly-on-Seine, where she died of tuberculosis. Her agony was disturbed by the sinister howling of a neighborhood dog. The parents of the dying woman, desperate that no one seemed able to silence this animal, who was usually calm, gave the order to give him a leg of lamb that had just been cooked. It proved useless; the dog despising the succulent meal, continued to howl until death.
Mr. Marcel Mangin, the painter and psychologist who died in 1915, had a dog endowed with the ability to anticipate the death of family members. Even before the disease became a matter of concern to those around it, the animal began to howl strangely, so that this prediction was eventually noticed and frightened people.
Mr. Marcel Mangin died suddenly of an embolism. However, the day before, when nothing had made the artist suspect such an imminent death, the dog began to howl in a significant way.
What does that animal mean now? Mr. and Mrs. Mangin asked themselves.
The next day, the painter died...
Unfair, it must be admitted, but the frightened Mrs. Mangin had the dog put down.
Mrs. Camille, Nancy's famous psychic, contacted me that she had owned a little dog.
Mrs. Camille's husband had been ill for a long time, but although his condition did not worsen, the little animal suddenly huddled under the chair, where he rested and began to howl lamentably.
- What's the matter with this animal? - said the patient; - it seems as if she announces my death...
He was reassured and the animal was removed; but the next day, Mrs. Camille's husband expired.
