A giraffe died after it hit its head while being transported on a truck on the N1 in Centurion on Thursday

, the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) said.

"The giraffe died due to the trauma to the head," Tshwane SPCA managing director Rick Allan said.

The giraffe reared up its head in the trailer and hit it against the bridge, Times Live reported.

The means used to transport the giraffe was not correct, Allan said.

"The head of the giraffe was above the vehicle."

Members of the public alerted the SPCA about two giraffes being transported in a truck.

The other giraffe was resting at a wildlife veterinary clinic.
