Helshoogte
Stellenbosch University takes note of the discussion on social media platforms regarding the abuse of a chicken at a residence event on Saturday 18 February 2017. SU condemns cruelty to animals and will investigate the incident. Early reports indicate that the person involved is neither a resident of Helshoogte nor a student at SU, but reports still need to be confirmed. The incident was reported to the House Committee by a concerned student. Committee members present at the time were unable to locate the guilty party. Due to the seriousness of the incident, the House Committee have also reported the matter to the Animal Welfare Society Stellenbosch. Visit for updates. Helshoogte Animal Welfare Society Stellenbosch
