Dog Fighting or dumping?

10 February 2013, 14:45

Sadly another one today!

If you have a lost or stolen dog, take a drive along the N7 as you might find your beloved pet on the side of the road dead.

I cannot believe that even with the new animal cruelty laws, we still have so much abuse of dogs.

I travel from Malmesbury on the N7 towards Cape Town and back daily and over the last month I have noticed an increase of dead and wandering dogs on the N7.

The increase in the amount of dead dogs left on the side of the road near the Dunoon indicates something illegal like DOG FIGHTING OR Dumping is taking place nearby.  

This cannot continue. I am appealing to all to please keep your eyes open and let’s put a stop to the abuse of our precious animals. Report ALL THE STRAYS AND DEAD DOGS to the local authorities so they can look into what’s happening in the DUNOON area.

The Principal Inspector of Animal Control, Peter Lottering, says that nobody has reported dead dogs along the N7 during the last month.  I saw 6 large, apparently well cared for, dead dogs.  If you also saw them, or see dead or stray dogs along the N7 in the Dunoon area, please report it to him at 084 624 4680 and at peter.lottering@capetown.gov.za

One way to CURB all this abuse is to put a law in place that all animals must be sterilised and to report all abused and stray dogs. If we do not report abuse of dogs then we are as guilty as the abusers.

We need to remember that dogs are not disposable and they are a commitment for life.  Please let your dog sleep in your house and keep them safe.

The sadness that is Malema

All in all, Malema is one bad cow. He should have been incarcerated long ago for his utterances. Many of which tread the line of treason.  Read more...
