SPCA woman charged for keeping 125+ cats
Durban - An employee of the Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) faces criminal charges after she kept 125 cats in "putrid conditions" in her home in Underberg in KwaZulu-Natal, the Witness newspaper reported on Friday.
"The cats on her property had been donated (sic) to the local Society for Prevention of Cruelty to animals [SPCA], but had been diverted by the employee to her own property," Inspector Jaco Pieterse was quoted as saying in the newspaper.
The cats had to be euthanised because they had not received any treatment and had all become feral.
The employee would be charged under the Animal Protection Act.
