Knysna - A Western Cape man who allegedly dragged his dog behind his car appeared in the Knysna Magistrate's Court on Tuesday, Western Cape police said.

Petrus Meyer, 65, was released on a warning and the case was postponed to July 11.

Knysna Animal Welfare Society chairman Martin van Leeuwen said two Brenton on Lake residents laid an animal cruelty charge against Meyer.

Police spokeswoman Captain Bernadine Steyn said the case was opened at the Knysna police station on Friday.

“On June 12 (Thursday) at about 4pm a dog was allegedly dragged with a rope around its neck behind a vehicle in Galjoen Street.”

Meyer was arrested on Saturday. He allegedly dragged the dog in a fit of anger after it escaped from his house.

The dog was admitted to the Knysna Veterinary Clinic on the same day.
