Round & About

It is inconceivable that yet another  juvenile baboon was shot with a pellet gun at the naval flats in Da Gama Park on 14 February 2016.Three baboons have been killed on naval property since July 2015.

The Cape of Good Hope SPCA wildlife manager, Megan Reid, together with HWS rangers will assist  in putting a docket together for submission to the Simonstown Police Station for prosecution under the Animal Protection Act (Act 71 of 1962).

Baboon field managers are currently collecting as much evidence as possible and  HWS will follow the same processes as were done with the two pellet shootings in Scarborough during December, 2015. The alleged Scarborough shooter is due to appear in the Simonstown Magistrate’s Court on 23 February, 2016.

Please protest against this cruelty by voicing your concerns using social media and spread the word amongst your friends.
