Two of Gqeberha’s top private schools — Grey High School and Collegiate Girls’ High School — are currently being investigated by the Eastern Cape department of education for animal cruelty and vandalism by matrics during their “40 days” celebrations.
According to HeraldLIVE, the incidents of animal cruelty and vandalism by some pupils during their “40 days” celebrations, reportedly include poisoning khoi fish, as well as plucking and drowning chickens. The latest incident of tying two turkeys together and throwing them in an empty school pool, occurred on Wednesday 10 August.
The traumatised birds had to be rescued by problem animal control specialist and head of the Urban Raptor Project Arnold Slabbert.
