No evidence against alleged dog killer

The police have not found any evidence against a man allegedly to shot dead one of his dogs in the north of Pretoria on Sunday morning.

The man, an owner of five Pitbulls, is reported to have fired several shots to stop a fierce dog fight that had ensued at his home.

One of the residents who spoke on condition of anonymity said the man had a history of killing dogs and residents feared for safety of their own dogs.

“He has already killed two dogs in the area [in the past] and this morning he fired many shots trying to stop his dogs from fighting, and ended up killing one of them.”

But SPCA inspectors were unable to find any evidence of a dog had been killed.

“There was no evidence that a dog was killed,” SPCA senior inspector Carlos Sernanez said.

He said the only thing he could find at the scene was an indication that a dog fight had occurred.

The owner conceded this and that he fired two shots to bring it to a halt.

But the neighbour suspected the man had gotten rid of the carcass because he had admitted to another neighbour that he had indeed killed the dog.

Rosslyn police were also reported to have left without opening a case.
