The police in Polokwane have yesterday, Monday 1 June 2020, launched a manhunt for an unknown number of suspects who are apparently moving around the farms on the outskirts of Polokwane, slaughtering cattle possibly for their meat.
A total of twelve cattle were found slaughtered on a farm outside Polokwane on Saturday 30 May 2020 and Monday 1 June 2020.
Eight carcasses were found in the early hours of today at around 01:00 on a farm which is situated next to the Silicon road. The suspects were apparently disturbed as they left all the carcasses and instruments they used to dismember the animals. The other three cattle were found slaughtered on Saturday, 30 May 2020 on the same farm. The suspects in this incident managed to take the carcasses and left only small portions.
A case of stock theft has been opened. Anyone with information about the incident is requested to contact Captain Lucky Ramashala on 0823718117, Crime Stop on 08600 10111 or the nearest police.
