“Somebody stabbed it, we don’t know why,” said Inspector Edna Mamonyane.

“We have contacted the SPCA [Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals] and I am on my way there now.”

Mamonyane said her officers were on the scene.

“One of my officers at the scene said it was a cheetah, we are waiting for the SPCA to confirm it,” she said.

“It might have been killed elsewhere and dropped there.”

No further details were available.
