Man sentenced for neglecting sick sheep

2013-11-25 00:00

THE abuse or neglect of even one animal is too much and will not be tolerated. This was the message by magistrate Pine Pienaar of the Mtubatuba Magistrate’s Court to an ex-restaurateur from St Lucia on the North Coast, who failed to get the necessary medical treatment for a suffering sheep.

According to senior inspector Roland Fivaz from the Empangeni SPCA, the sheep was kept in a pen built next to the restaurant on the main road. The restaurant has been sold since, and the new owners had the pen removed. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
