Two police dogs were shot dead in KwaZulu-Natal on Monday. Police in the province are now appealing to the public to donate replacements.
“The SAPS K9 unit would like to ask the community for help in donating dogs to the unit,” police said in a statement.
“The dogs play a big role in the fight against crime in the province. The unit has a shortage of dogs because on June 14th two dogs were shot while fighting criminals in Maqongqo.
“German Shepherds and Rottweilers between the ages of one and three are estimated.”
Anyone who can help should call Col Naidoo on 082 417 6168/031 312 1499.
