A chinese restaurant in Centurion was visited this morning by the South African Police Service, after an investigation showed the owner regularly killed dogs he apparently stole around Gauteng and served them to customers.

During the raid the police found over 60 dogs locked in the cages in the restaurant’s store-room. Some of these dogs looks like they were hit with hard objects before they were captured and most of the still had collars with names and addresses.

The owner and his son made a mistake by advertising on OLX that they are looking to buy dogs.

People who lost their dogs will be given a location to come check if their dog is one of the victims.
