Terrified animals taken to SPCA after fireworks ordeal
WITH Diwali celebrations over, the Pietermaritzburg SPCA has said they are dealing with the after-effects of terrified and injured animals following the fireworks displays.
Pietermaritzburg SPCA’s Ronnie Yeoman said although the firecrackers in celebration of Diwali did not go on late into the night, the organisation still had animals — including some that were severely injured — dropped off at the SPCA or needing rescue.
“We had a number of animals that were brought in and were very traumatised,” said Yeoman.
She said five dogs were brought to the SPCA on Wednesday, one of which had suffered two broken legs.
