Hundreds of animals have either been found dead or rescued by various animal welfare organizations in KwaZulu-Natal.
This, after heavy rains wreaked in the province last week, leaving tens of thousands destitute.
Animal welfare organisations found a dog stranded on a roof, and a python and crocodile washed up on the beach. Cows, snakes, frogs, dogs, cats, and donkeys among the deceased animals rescue teams were confronted with.
The Kloof and Highway SPCA in KZN have been inundated with calls about animals needing to be rescued. SPCA spokesperson Barbara Patrick says rescue teams are being confronted with devastating scenes.
Patrick adds that several carcasses are being collected, but their main priority is to assist animals in need of shelter and food.
