Joining forces, a large contingent of officers, descended on the mountainous terrain in the area.
Their operation yielded success when 23 stolen cattle were recovered.

The South African Police Service Airwing was part the livestock recovery operation.

“Airwing members spotted a herd of about 600 cattle grazing unattended in the mountains. The herd was driven down for the Stock Theft Unit detectives and community members to identify. The remainder of the cattle belonged to the community members who informed police that the animals are taken to the mountains in the mornings to graze freely without supervision,” commented police spokesperson Captain Nqobile Gwala.

This two-pronged operation’s second part was educating the community about the importance of branding their livestock and the consequences of buying stolen livestock.
