2014-11-12 00:00

A TRUCK killed 11 Brahman bulls as the herd crossed the R600 yesterday morning.

According ER24 paramedic Ziyaad Wara­sally, the herd had been crossing the road from one farm to another when the truck came around a bend.

Warasally said the unmarked tipper truck had been unable to brake in time and had driven through the herd of Brahman bulls.

“There were cattle scattered all over the road. It wasn’t nice to see,” said Warasally.

According to a source who could not be named as he is not authorised to speak to the press, the truck driver lost control of the vehicle and went down an embankment.

“The truck driver had a few bumps and bruises, but nothing serious,” said Warasally.
