A hacking gang that hacks up cattle whilst they are still alive has hit a farm outside Fochville in Gauteng on Saturday 1 December 2018 and mutilated a stud herd. These gangs regularly hit farms between Fochville, Parys in the Free State and Potchefstroom in North West.
On Saturday they hacked up 4 cattle and carried the meat away that they wanted. They cut the achilles tendon of a cow and left the animal behind still living. The cow was also badly hacked over its back and had to be put out when the owner found it.
Four of the five cows had calves that will have to be raised by hand now. The cattle was part of a Simmentaler stud herd belonging to the Circle A farm of Pieter de Villiers.
The damage is estimated at R100 000 and it is now the third time that De Villiers has suffered huge damage this way.
