Stabbed while my owner was at work

Reading progress

Cape of Good Hope SPCA Inspector Siyabonga was dispatched to a gruesome scene in Wallacedene, Kraaifontein last night. ” I immediately responded to the call, on my arrival the owner showed me the bleeding dog named Numbers. She informed me when she got back from work she was told by the kids in the street that Numbers was stabbed by someone that is known in the area”. I took the injured dog to the Cape of Good Hope SPCA hospital in Grassy Park for treatment.


The South African Police Service (SAPS) was called, but the suspect fled as SAPS arrived.

“This was such a disturbing call. I feel so bad for this beautiful young dog. Someone from outside enters’ the property and stabbed him inside his yard. I am so angry because of what happened to this innocent animal” said Inspector Siyabonga.

Criminal Charges

The SPCA inspector is now in the process of collating Affidavits from witnesses. “I intend to lay criminal charges against the perpetrator, I am taking this case all the way. I have informed the police this suspect must be apprehended and must be in jail for this act of cruelty – I need justice for Numbers”


A fiery inspector said, “This is the 21st century, Animal Cruelty must stop and it has to stop with you and me. If you don’t like animals, stay away from them

Dr Zoey, a resident veterinarian, reports “what we see here is an incision of about 2cm consistent with a stab wound caused by a sharp object. There is a lot of swelling and we suspect blood clots have formed under the skin. We are currently exploring for any internal damage beyond the initial point of entry.
