Glasses, a small friendly white and tan dog belonging to a Hillary woman, was outside in the yard when the neighbour entered the property and shot her through the left shoulder.
Following a call for help from the distressed owner, Inspector Ramsamy collected the dog and took her to Sherwood vet for emergency treatment, after which she spent the weekend at our SPCA under the supervision of Dr Muchopa, as she needed cage rest, pain medication and antibiotics.
Fortunately, Glasses recovered completely and went back home to her relieved owner. A cruelty charge was laid against this gunman and after 22 MONTHS Inspector Ramsamy’s perseverance and dedication has paid off with a successful conviction.
The accused was sentenced to a R12 000 fine and ordered to pay and an additional R 2 000 to SPCA. Well done to the team involved for their commitment to Glasses and animals like her who need our ongoing help in the fight against cruelty.
