Pretoria - The SPCA is investigating an incident in which the body of a sausage dog (dachshund) was dragged behind a bakkie on New Year’s Day.

A Rustenburg resident told Beeld he couldn’t believe his eyes when he saw the body of the sausage dog tied with wire to the back of the Isuzu double cab and being dragged through the streets.

Harry Liebel said it looked like the driver was heading for a dumping ground in the town to get rid of refuse bags in the back of the bakkie.

“That's not the way to do it. The person could surely just have put the dog in a refuse bag to throw away with the other bags,” said Liebel.

The dog was already dead when he took the photograph of it being dragged in the road. It was not clear if the dog was alive when it was tied to the bakkie.

Beeld sent the photograph to the Rustenburg SPCA, which is trying to trace the owner of the bakkie. It visited the address linked to the number plate on Monday, but could not find the owner and will try again on Tuesday.
