Posted by Tayana

In a statement the Veterinarians for Animal Welfare Zimbabwe (VAWZ) said that people who abuse goats when making goat as currency jokes could face jail time or prosecution for animal cruelty or even stock-theft which carries a minimum nine year jail sentence.

This comes after a video circulated on social media showing party goers assumed to be in Harare took a live goat with them to a pub, ordered drinks and pretended that they would pay for them using the animal. VAWZ is appealing to members of the public to record and report any abuse of goats and other animals.
