Cows on the N2 a dis­as­ter wait­ing to hap­pen

Grocott's Mail - - MAKANA VOICES -

Ap­prox­i­mately a week ago over lunch time, I chased about 15 head of cat­tle off the N2 at the turnoff to the 1820 Set­tlers Mon­u­ment. They headed to the grassy area around the Post­grad Vil­lage.

I then phoned the Gra­ham­stown SAPS to re­port this, was trans­ferred from one per­son to an­other un­til I com­plained, and then was told that some­one would be sent out to deal with the prob­lem. A few days ago when I hap­pened to be trav­el­ling on the N2, there were more cows graz­ing on the side of the N2 ad­ja­cent the Post­grad Vil­lage, so it ap­pears they are now a frequent pres­ence in that area.

Al­though I don’t per­son­ally mind the cows in town, their pres­ence on and near the N2 is a dis­as­ter wait­ing to hap­pen, and re­ally some­thing needs to be done.
