Artist Description

This donkey was slaughtered to feed a tiger in captivity, in a northern Gauteng game reserve. After feeding, the remainder of the donkey carcass was to be used as a ‘prop’ for a film shoot.

The ‘Animal Protection Act 72 of 1962’ still refers to animals as being “things… or movable property”. Animal activist groups continue to fight for the rights of animals as sentient beings, who feel pain and suffering, resulting in behavioural problems such as pacing, self-mutilation and swaying, amongst others. These characteristics were evident in the captive tiger mentioned.

If animals have souls, then they have rights. Until this has been accepted into the constitution, it is a human right to protect them.
