SASOLBURG - The Vereeniging & Vanderbijlpark SPCA managed to rescue an abused dog in Sasolburg. They received video footage of a Sasolburg dog owner continuously throwing stones at her dogs. In the video footage, it can be seen how terrified the dogs are of the owner. The one dog was lying on the ground, trying to shield behind the other dog and shivering from fear as the stones hit them in the face. Previous complaints were received about abuse at the same property, however, there was no evidence to substantiate the claims and the SPCA needs substantiated evidence of abuse for the courts to grant them an order to remove the animal. According to the SPCA, they are still looking for the second dog as the owner claimed they sold the dog. Charges of animal cruelty will now be laid against the owner in terms of the Animals Protection Act.
