Veterinarians for Animal Welfare Zimbabwe
The picture above says it all!! Sometimes, under these cattle are also goats/sheep. VAWZ stopped this truck recently going through Headlands. The owner was subsequently prosecuted, pleaded guilty, and was fined.
Investigations consist of checking inhumane living conditions; health; feeding; dipping etc.
Since our last newsletter - VAWZ have been extremely busy! - we have dealt with cases involving lions in captivity, transportation of cattle, chicken abattoirs, puppy vendors, security dogs, race horses, animals at the University, the trafficking of puppies from South African "puppy farms", as well as all the day to day reports of cruelty concerning domestic animals. Our investigations have taken us to Chinhoyi, Karoi, Marondera, Guruve, Masvingo, Bulawayo, West Nicholson & Beit Bridge.
Dear Friends of VAWZ
Our final update for 2010. Firstly we would like to thank you all for your very kind donations this year, which have enabled Meryl and Bernard to travel the country tackling a variety of different issues.
Here are two of the most recent cases.
