In a shocking turn of events, a dog was necklaced in Nelson Mandela Boulevard just 100 meters from the Thembalethu Police station – the most horrific incident of violence since the riots erupted yesterday afternoon.
The perpetrator/s placed a tyre around the dog’s body and set the tyre alight, leaving the dog to die a horrific death.
George Herald journalist Zolani Sinxo discovered the dog at about 12:00 today. “The tyre had melted into the skin of the dog. It is horrific. I hope that witnesses will come forward so that these people can be punished,” said Sinxo.
When Sinxo arrived on the scene the rubber and the dog’s body were already cold, indicating that the gruesome attack took place at least three to four hours prior to his discovery.
