“When the thieves reached the river between St Faith’s and Highflats, they slaughtered two of the cattle and fled, leaving the remaining cattle behind. The people who went to look for the cattle found the 11 cows and the carcasses when they reached the river. No one has been arrested as yet,” she said.

The stock theft unit in Kokstad is investigating.
