KNYSNA NEWS FLASH - Five animals with baboon bites being brought into Knysna Animal Welfare Society (KAWS) in one week, is an alert to the public to be careful of baboons attacking their animals.
KAWS manager Annelien Kitley, said that in the past week up until Saturday, March 18, five dogs had been brought to them for treatment, some with serious and deep wounds.
Normally KAWS see no more than one dog a month with a baboon bite, said Kitley.
"I am concerned that since the recent fires, the baboons are moving to look for food and dogs are getting in the way," she said.
In the last week KAWS has seen five dogs with wounds from baboons coming from Dam-se-Bos, Rheenendal and areas where there have been fires.
