Help for Man­dela cat­tle

The Star Early Edition - - NEWS -

REL­A­TIVES of Nel­son Man­dela have un­der­taken to en­sure the wel­fare of the cat­tle at his Qunu homestead in the East­ern Cape, the NSPCA said yes­ter­day. The farm an­i­mal pro­tec­tion unit of the Na­tional Coun­cil of So­ci­eties for the Preven­tion of Cru­elty to An­i­mals re­cently in­spected the cat­tle after con­cerns were raised. Na­tional in­spec­tor Navesh Singh said grazing on the farm was ex­hausted and sup­ple­men­tary feed­ing, although not ad­e­quate, was pro­vided. He said the re­mains of dead cat­tle were ob­served but did not seem re­cent. He said Man­dela’s fam­ily and rep­re­sen­ta­tives had been co-oper­a­tive and the es­tate would cover all costs. – Sapa
