The Witness - - NEWS - CHELSEA PI­ETERSE

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.
