    LOOK: KZN dogs remain with deceased owner

    The body of a man who went missing with his three dogs while hunting was discovered on the side of an unpaved road in Tongaat, KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) on Sunday. 

    Tongaat is one of the areas that was ravaged by the torrential rains in the province. The South African Weather Service (SAWS) issued a red LEVEL 10 warning for KZN on Saturday which remains in place even for Sunday. 


    According to Reaction Unit South Africa (RUSA) a passerby made the discovery at the link between Maidstone and Brake Village.

    “It was established that the 65-year-old male and a neighbour left their home in Tongaat – KZN last night to hunt small game in the sugar cane plantation. They split up during the hunt however the elderly male and his three dogs failed to return to his vehicle. 

    “His neighbour walked back to his residence and informed his family who launched a search party. The man’s lifeless body was discovered on the side of an unpaved road this morning. His three three dogs remained with his body.”
