Severe neglect

The occupants at 3 Duiker Street, Kleinbaai, keep two great danes (one is still a puppy) in a very small yard in appaling conditions. The dogs get no attention and are never let out. They go without food and fresh water for days. The puppy is just skin and bones and cries all day. The neigbors have confronted the owner, who gets very aggresive and abusive. The case was reported to Barc Gansbaai Animal Welfare, Overstrand Municipality Law Enforcement and Hermanus SPCA. The latter has no jurisdiction to do something and the others won't do anything.  The neighbors are saddened and distressed by this. What else can we do?

    Penny, I am not sure exactly what all the terms are. For one, he has to fence the entire property for the dogs to have more space to move around on the property and so that they could use the dog house which is standing in the front yard for shelter. I am not sure how they will monitor what and how often they are fed. The media is also now involved in the case and hopefully the dogs will be removed at some point.

    Thank you Walda. Will you keep us posted. Owners on terms ...what terms?

    I can report that Overberg Municipality Law Enforcement and Barc Gansbaai visited the premises today and reported that they have put the owner to terms and will monitor the situation on a weekly basis.
