CHAIN was this week faced with the brutal murder of a female dog killed with a axe on a farm in Winterhoek outside of Tulbagh. The details of this horrific act are still to be established but it appears from eye witnesses that a man on a farm killed
the female dog with a axe, while his wife helped him by holding the dog.
The dog was apparently tied up with 'bal tou' and the man admitted to carrying out this execution with Chain investigators on the scene, after the matter was reported
by the farm owner to CHAIN. This horrific scene also happened in front of primary school children on the farm and again reflects the inhumane treament of animals that is becoming common practice in the community.
The dog was Killed in front
of its pup which that was also severely traumatised, abused, scared and underfed. CHAIN and the Tulbagh vet then took the unfortunate decision to have the pup put down. A case has been opened with the Police and is under investigation by Sgt McDonald.
