According to reports, the SAPS members noticed a white Mazda 323 with three suspicious looking men, while on patrol and immediately investigated.

“The vehicle was driving past Glebelands, along Prince Mcwayizeni Road, at a slow pace. The vehicle looked as if it was carrying an unusual heavy load, as the back of the vehicle almost touched the ground. This appeared suspicious to the police officers, as there was only one passenger seated at the back of the vehicle.
The members decided to pull the vehicle over and question the men. Upon inspection the vehicle, they noticed the back passenger was seated on top of a slaughtered cow,” said Captain Nqobile Gwala.

According to police reports the cow had been hacked into pieces with its head, legs and body across the back seat and its intestines visible.

Upon questioning the men, it was established that they had stolen and slaughtered the cow the previous night in Ixopo.
