CAPE TOWN - The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (NSPCA) on Wednesday expressed its outrage and disbelief after it was alerted to an act of animal cruelty in the Eastern Cape.
The organisation received photos of a man hanging a live dog from a wire fence in a village near Cala.
The NSPCA has deployed inspectors to the village in the hope of finding out more details.
Speaking to Eyewitness News, the association’s Christine Kuch broke down.
“I’ve been involved with the SPCA for 20 years, it takes a lot to shock us.”
She said the person who sent them the photos should have reported the incident to the nearest police station, located 17km away.
Kuch said they were waiting to make contact with their inspectors, as cellphone reception is problematic in that part of the province.
