Still no justice for Warrior dog

Recommended Posts

Not sure if anyone recalls this, on the 20th of October 2011 the dog named Warrior was pulled from a 1.5 meters under the ground at Luhlaza Secondary School Khayelitsha. The principal, Manono Makhaphela, had allegedly ordered two janitors to “get rid” of the stray dog as it was regarded as a nuisance. He was charged with a R6000 fine but only had to pay R3000. The other half was suspended for a period of 5 years under the condition than an animal protection awareness program was implemented at the school no later than 18 July 2013. To date he still has not complied with his court order.

 

The Mdzananda Animal Clinic has actually got to rely on a petition now to compel the court to take action, see below. It is unbelievable as in any other country if you fail to comply with a court order you would be thrown in jail immediately, this is disgusting! :sick::mad:

Lily’s (new name) story swept the nation, and shed light on the fact that more animal welfare programs were needed in South Africa. Lily’s legacy lives on till this day through IFAW’s blanket drive which helps provide blankets to dogs living animal shelters!

 

The good news doesn’t end there though. Shortly after Lily’s story hit the news, an animal rights journalist adopted her into her forever family. A true happily ever after!

I think the initial sentence must be implemented, or how can we have faith in our judicial system?

I think we must all re-evaluate our stance on animals and specie-ism, because there is no difference between the pain Warrior went through, and the many animals tortured and killed every day, cause they taste good.
