The SPCA is looking for information about 2 tiny piglets who were left caged in Madiba Circle at UCT’s upper campus during the Cape Town fires last weekend.

In a statement on their website, the organisation says, “While our team were searching through the fire-ravaged areas we were expecting to see some horrific sites, but nothing could have prepared them for this! The burnt remains of 2 tiny piglets, each separately padlocked in a cage were located +/- 2 km’s into the forest at Madiba Circle at UCT’s upper campus.”

The organisation says the discovery was not only shocking but also a complete mystery.

“What we do know is that these tiny piglets were left out in the open, without shelter, food or water for an undetermined period of time before they died, they were contained in padlocked cages with no way to escape and likely suffered the torture of the blazing wildfire.”

Anyone with information can call 0833261604 ah or 0217004158/9 during office hours. Reports will remain anonymous.
