A HORSE, allegedly belonging to a farmer in KwaXaba, was recently seen roaming the streets of Gamalakhe during the day and often late in the night.

Residents greatest concerns was that the horse was left to roam unattended and at times children play with the horse pulling the rope tied around its neck.

The Fever spoke to residents in the area where the horse feeds, who said it has been almost a year since it was first seen and it was much smaller then.

SPCA Lower South Coast was contacted to do an investigation on the ownership of this horse as rumours suggest the horse may have been stolen.

Tsara Tickton of SPCA Lower South Coast said the SPCA gets call about animals roaming the streets, but have not received any calls regarding this specific horse.

“We get so many calls about animals being out of their properties, but there really isn’t too much we can do if the owners are known, however we can pick up the animals and then the owner can come and claim it from us.”

Tickton said protection services are also involved in such situations - they can fine the owners and give them an ultimatum to fix their boundaries up properly.

“To avoid penalties from protection services people must keep their animals confined to their property,” said Tickton.
