Twenty-five cows stolen from Elandsfontein were found dead with their legs cut off in Lawley, south of Johannesburg, police said on Wednesday. Captain Mbulaheni Netshivhodza said the cows were part of a herd of 90 stolen on Tuesday night. He said the owner of the cows was alerted to the crime by an anonymous caller on Tuesday night and told to look for his stock in Lawley. Netshivhodza said the owner and his workers found 33 cows alive some distance before reaching Lawley. He said when the group arrived in Lawley they found 25 more cows, but these had been killed and their legs cut off. More cows were found nearby and eight were still missing.

    If there is a divine being, please let the bastards that did this be hit by a car and lose their legs and arms!

    Sounds like getting back at a farmer by killing his animals in a very cruel way.
