The SPCA has reacted to a shooting of a dog. A 68-year-old man was charged after a pitbull dog was shot dead. The SPCA expressed outrage at the shooting. The SPCA is focused on education to counter animal abuse. After a dog was shot three times, a 68-year-old man from Lammermoor, Gauteng, was charged with animal cruelty.
Following the gunshot, the Randburg SPCA was contacted, and the head of the inspectorate, Shiven Bodasing, discovered two dogs fighting on Tuesday. A dog fights for his life after being shot by a uniformed officer.
The man is said to have fired three shots at a female pitbull after hearing the dogs outside his home. It was neither reasonable nor necessary to shoot the animal. There was no attempt to keep the animals apart. He was surrounded by others; he had no right to take the law into his own hands.
The most unacceptable and aggravating aspect of this case is that he discharged a pistol in such a way that other individuals were put in immediate risk, Bodasing added. The dog that survived was unharmed. Bodasing stressed that lethal force was not required.
It was completely unnecessary to shoot the dog. The other dog was not even hurt in the battle, thus it wasn't serious enough to justify the use of a gun Bradley Hughes, an SPCA cadet, said. The dog's body was dug out from a shallow burial by the SPCA.
The man was arrested and charged with animal cruelty, as well as unauthorized firearm discharge and malicious property damage. The dog's body was removed from a shallow burial by SPCA personnel. The Randburg SPCA is committed to completing its mission of protecting animal rights and educating South Africans about animal abuse.
There is a significant distinction between intentional, knowing cruelty to animals and cruelty as a result of poverty and a lack of education. Add in the fact that resources are limited. When animal mistreatment is deliberate, we can and do not only issue formal warnings, but we also file criminal charges, according to the charity's website.
Wildlife organizations have been outraged by the slaughter of seven 'problem' lions in the Karoo. After a cat is allegedly driven over by a police van in Cape Town, the SPCA steps in.
