The dassie seized by the SPCA from a group of boys with hunting dogs on Saturday was not shot dead.

It is alleged that the boys, between the ages of 10 to 15, regularly hunted dassies using dogs. Concerns were raised that the boys may have been armed after shots were heard in the area after the boys were seen entering the vacant land off Roberts Road.
