Earlier this month, police and SPCA officials found starving and dead animals on the farm South Africas National Council of Provinces chairperson Thandi Modise. She earns a salary of USD250 000 per year!!
About 85 live pigs had begun cannibalising 58 dead pigs, and were reportedly drinking their own urine.
Sheep, geese, goats and ducks were also among the more than 100 dead animals. Others had to be euthanised.
It appeared the animals had been without water and food for a week, possibly two. There were no farmworkers on the property, no electricity, and the water pumps were broken.
