Dogs poisoned for a second time


I am sad to report that the criminals who tried to poison our dogs on the 2nd of October, returned again yesterday morning at 02h00am.

My husband heard our neighbour’s dogs barking just before 02h00 yesterday morning, went outside and saw a black man running down the street into the field close to our home. Our dogs were still fine when he went out. He was outside for only a few minutes, when he came back in the house our little terrier was dead. Someone must have thrown poison over the fence at the back of our yard while my husband was looking for perpetrators in front.

Luckily the boerboel didn’t eat any poison. The terrier must have eaten everything before the boerboel could get there. She inadvertently saved our boerboel’s life.

The police was notified once again. They were in front of our gate within 5 minutes, and drove off hoping to still catch the criminals. We haven’t heard from the police yet.

Our boerboel now sleeps inside the house.

We have electric fencing, motion censors outside and inside the house connected to an alarm system. We have a security company patrolling the area. Burglar bars in front of every window and door. And we have notified the police.

Still we are not safe.

    Sorry to hear about this. Is better to let our dogs sleep inside. Save for them and then they are there to alert us when someone is in the house.
