POTCHEFSTROOM – The South African Police Service (SAPS) management in the Province have noted with concern a post doing the rounds on social media platforms regarding the alleged existence of puppies with human features, found in Zinniaville near Rustenburg.

According to the post, it is alleged that a gardener discovered a dog with puppies bearing human features of which the landlord is said to be responsible.

We would like to state that no such incident was reported to the police in Tlhabane.

The post is false and misleading. Members of the community are once more requested to refrain from circulating unverified information as this causes an unnecessary frenzy.
