Recently Sandton SPCA confiscated two sub-adult male serval (Leptailurus serval) from a private residence in Bryanston, Johannesburg. They were being kept illegally as pets.
We sedated them and both underwent a complete health check. They were in good health, albeit a little overweight.
The one has already been placed into a pre-release enclosure at his release site and the other one will soon be placed on another reserve. Because they are both male, they cannot be released into the same territory.
We treat indigenous animals free of charge, relying solely on the donations and support of our community.
