Modise's farm has improved conditions
The NSPCA says Modise has since complied with veterinary guidelines.
JOHANNESBURG - The National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (NSPCA) has reported improved conditions at the North West farm of National Council of Provinces (NCOP) chairperson, Thandi Modise.
Modise's farm came under the spotlight earlier this year after livestock were found unattended and starving.
About 85 live pigs had begun cannibalising other dead pigs and were reportedly drinking their own urine.
Following the shocking discovery, the NSPCA obtained a court order permitting officials to take all the animals kept on the farm.
After an alleged court battle to have the impounded livestock returned to the farm, it's reported Modise has since complied with veterinary guidelines.
Authorities from the farm inspection unit say a recent visit to the farm has shown improved conditions for livestock.
NSPCA inspector Grace de Lange said, "The condition of the cattle has improved and there was sufficient food provided to the animals. We have been monitoring on a regular basis and we'll continue to do so."
More than 120 animals were put down and another 130 rescued on her Modderfontein farm.
