Six men are due to appear in court on Friday for using dogs to hunt wildlife.
Aletta Harrison, EWN Multimedia reporter says using dogs to hunt wildlife has become a common practice in the Western Cape.
The SPCA is now looking after the greyhounds they confiscated from the men, saying illegal dog hunting is a nationwide problem.
Harrison says the hunters are not hunting for meat but the practice is related to gambling. They place bets on the animals and sell the body parts later.
They not only place bets on the dogs but also the type of animals they will take down.— Aletta Harrison, EWN Multimedia reporter
What we know at the moment is that the perpetrators are a group of men from Nomzamo.— Aletta Harrison, EWN Multimedia reporter
The SPCA also highlighted that the practice is cruel, not only towards wildlife, but to the dogs as well.
