Cattle left to roam the streets of Burgersfort

Cattle cross the streets of Burgersfort.

BURGERSFORT – High traffic volumes are not the only concern to the residents in this town. Lately, there has been an influx of cattle in the streets.

According to locals, these animals caused numerous vehicle accidents on the R37 and R555 and also slow the flow of vehicles in the CBD.

Limpopo police advised communities to look after their animals as the accidents were caused by negligent owners.

Col Moatshe Ngoepe of Limpopo SAPS said they were going to impound all animals next to the roads and in town. The owner would be fined when they collected them. Meanwhile residents said some of the cattle enter their yards in Aloe Ridge and Leopards Bush.

“It’s not only cattle, on Sundays you will see goats and donkeys in town. We plead with livestock owners to take care of their animals,” said Matshidiso Malatji, a resident.
