Carina Bodenstein was inspecting the home of a man who had applied to adopt an animal from the SPCA.
His application was declined after other animals were found to be living in appalling conditions, Bodenstein said, and that’s when he became aggressive.
“I feared for my life. I didn’t want to go back to the house, but I went back for the animals,” Bodenstein said.
She said the SPCA managed to remove the animals after a court order was granted.
