SPCA shocked by dog hanged from wire fence

2012-07-12 08:00

Port Elizabeth - Animal welfare inspectors have been sent to an Eastern Cape village to investigate after the SPCA was informed of a case of extreme animal cruelty.

Eyewitness News reported that the national SPCA received photographs of a man hanging a live dog from a wire fence in a village near Cala.

Christine Kuch from the SPCA said: “I’ve been involved with the SPCA for 20 years, it takes a lot to shock us.”

She said the person who had taken the pictures should have reported the incident to police.

She added that the organisation would await a report by their inspectors.

    I hope his genetials are going to get caught in his zipper!

      michelle.blackie - 2012-07-12 08:47

      And my no-one be around to help him ... also just stand around taking photographs!!!!

      gieljam.gomtor - 2012-07-12 08:50

      A community who does not care for its animals will also do harm to its own..

      marc.rule - 2012-07-12 09:03

      Why only his genetials?????? an eye for an eye.

      This is just abhorrent! Some human beings are a complete waste of time, energy and space - in fact they are oxygen thieves. Karma will get him - son of a seafaring cockaroach!!!!!!!

    this is not shocking. things like this happen constantly to people and animals on this earth. it still needs to be dealt with though and there is not enough help for the suffering going around from those who are able to help!

    Is there no bottom as too how low humans will go?

      clinton.badenhorst - 2012-07-12 09:19

      These are not humans...

    Cruelty towards animals is the most basic example of the need for power and dominance. Coward - criminal - cretin

  • shanaaz.abrahams - 2012-07-12 08:16

    Some people are just sick!

      gieljam.gomtor - 2012-07-12 08:52

      For sure and then you get some who even see dogs as a delicacy..

  • Moi - 2012-07-12 08:20

    What kind of a "person" does something like this to another living creature????

      piet.hannibol - 2012-07-12 08:44

      God's grace suffices - typical, bring atheist in line with animal abusers. I'm not a Christian nor an atheist and I'd rather see people hang from wires than innocent animals.... thanks to people like you of course. I'm losing more and more faith and respect in humanity. Hope the people/person who did this gets every bad thing the universe holds for them.

      gieljam.gomtor - 2012-07-12 08:54

      Moi. Now what's a million dollar question.

      Lyndatjie - 2012-07-12 08:55

      @GodsGraceSuffices - your judgemental attitude is contrary to the teaching your holy book espouses... live the words of that book that you so vehemently follow please. Otherwise your ignorance will keep on proving to us Atheists that religion and the subsequent intollerance it brings - is indeed the reason for all trouble and strive in this world.

      Moi - 2012-07-12 09:39

      @godsgrace - don't be such an idiot. Religion or the lack thereof has nothing to do with cruelty to animals. You'll probably find that the idiot that did this to that poor animals proclaims himself to be a Christian man. Individual beliefs do not make you a good person, neither does someones lack of beliefs make them a bad person.

      rob.baggaley - 2012-07-12 09:45

      Lol. Story about animal cruelty now turns to a religeous argument !

  • kimsaiyanprincess.murison - 2012-07-12 08:34

    - GodsGrace that is such a retarded statement. All over the world 'holy' festivals occur where animals are sacrificed to the Lord and to show human dominance over animals. I am an atheist and I grew up in a home where animals were treated like royalty. This article made my eyes because I felt so sad for this poor animal's suffering. Stop blaming Satan for bad things. People are just messed up.

  • faan.gerber - 2012-07-12 08:35

    No mercy for this person - i would like to hang him/her on a fence for a few days without food or water.

  • michelle.blackie - 2012-07-12 08:46

    In the words of Mahatma Ghandi "“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated” ......

      michelle.blackie - 2012-07-12 09:39

      Will the person who disagrees please be brave enough to write a comment?!?!?!?!

      Marco - 2012-07-12 11:04

      the person probably doesnt disagree with the sentiment ,they ,like myself ,are probably just tired of seeing that same quote on every thread of this nature. "please stop using that quote over and over again" - marco. and you can quote me on that that said ,.... ROAST HIM AND HIS FAMILY ALIVE ( AND HIM LAST)

      michelle.blackie - 2012-07-12 11:44

      Thank you for your comment, Marcosusername. Pity that we do not pay attention to the meaning of the quote - as it is not the quote that is important, but the truth about those who hurt animals and people speak volumes about what is negative about South Africa!

  • andrea.wyk - 2012-07-12 08:48

    Disgusting!! How could someone be so cruel!! Hooligans!!

  • Chumscrubber1 - 2012-07-12 08:56

    Only a human being can be this evil. I can't bear even reading stories like this, but I do ... why?

      piet.hannibol - 2012-07-12 09:26

      If you were not exposed to this it would have been hard to calibrate your own feelings toward it. You read because you care.

  • badballie - 2012-07-12 09:09

    Obviously the reports of the extinction of the Neanderthal have been greatly over exaggerated. This country has its fair share of cavemen it would seem.

  • tricia.sutherland1 - 2012-07-12 09:11

    and we call people animals!!! even if you kick a dog, the next day when you sober he will come and love you and protect you and be your friend. animals are better than a lot of people.

      Hitler loved dogs. True story.

      Marco - 2012-07-12 11:07

      OOOOOOOOOOOH ,the usual hitler comparison. hitler breathed air ,just like you ,it must mean something!!!

      naeem.essop - 2012-07-26 01:21

      marco is a troll. These barbarians breathe air too - Does that mean we are all like them? If we assume your logic, of course. I was referencing something specific. Not a basic element of life, idiot.

      LanfearM - 2013-01-08 09:25

      Yah, and Hitler was also a vegetarian, and a christian and rabidly against smoking [even wanted to ban his soldiers from smoking, but his generals wisely stopped him]. So what?

  • jcadman3 - 2012-07-12 09:19

    I'm curious ... This seems to be very similar to the Thenus story... when nothing was ever done ?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

  • jessica.kruger.3785 - 2012-07-12 09:19

    This guy is a freaking chop, cruel B@s#\t. Give him to us, we will fix him good and send a clear message out there, animal abuse will NOT be tolerated.

    Breaking news - Urgent post by PBFSA - Last night a pit bull was stolen in Brakpan out of his garden. The piece of trash who stole him then took him and fought with him. After the fight, he was dragged behind a bakkie, and left for dead. But he didn't die. This morning his devastated owners found him and raced him to the vet. He has horrific injuries, and instead of putting him to sleep his owners have made the choice to try save their special boy. I am sending out an urgent appeal to anyone who would be prepared to assist in helping with his vet bill. What happened last night is not new, this happens daily. Anyone who would be able to help however small please contact Annelien Prinsloo, 082 498 9668. She will be able to assist with banking details. A case has been opened by the spca

  • kswanepoel - 2012-07-13 11:23
