A Somerset West pet owner on Thursday said he is devastated after he found his beloved dog decapitated.
Mike Daneel said when he returned on Sunday afternoon his 15-year-old Jack Russell had been butchered.
He has laid a criminal charge with the police as he suspects someone in the area may be responsible.
Daneel said the dog's torso was found on a nearby property.
"The dog was pulled through the fence, the throat was slit. They
tried to cut the head off and they battled. I think they shot at the dog
to get the head dislodged from the body," he said.
The SPCA have heavily condemned this gruesome attack.
