2012-11-20 00:00

A FARMER is heartbroken after his cow, which had been stuck in a deep, narrow hole for eight days, was shot because it couldn’t be rescued.

“I’m feeling very bad. I was there when it was killed and had to step back because I didn’t want to see it getting shot or hear the sound,” Madlala said. Although he feels the cow was special and that it’s a great loss, he said killing it was for the best. “I think it is better now because I know that it is not hungry or thirsty.” publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
