uMngeni SPCA supporters will picket outside the Howick Magistrate’s Court today over a two-year delay in prosecuting a couple found in possession of 117 animals kept in conditions said to be contravening almost all the clauses in the Animal Protection Act.

According to Wylie, the animals — several dogs and cats, four pigs, two horses and two birds — were seized under regulation 468, which gives the SPCA power to remove animals where there are signs of neglect and cruelty.
