A Cape Town hiker came across a tahr on Table Mountain, moments after it had been shot dead by rangers.
Steven Otter said there was blood on the path and the animal’s legs had been tied together.
He had been hiking up Platteklip Gorge last Thursday and was about two-thirds of the way up when he came across the rangers with the animal.
Otter said he’d seen the tahr about 30 times, sometimes standing on a ledge looking out over Cape Town.
“I asked them how they could shoot my friend and they said it had broken its leg.”
