Animal Welfare Society Helderberg inspector Pieter Prinsloo died after he was hit by a car while helping cattle across the N2.

The City of Cape Town says it has reached out to the Western Cape government and roads agency Sanral to discuss repairing fencing along the N2 highway.

Animal Welfare Society Helderberg inspector, Pieter Prinsloo, died after he was hit by a car while helping cattle across the N2 at the weekend.

The City's JP Smith explains that provincial government and Sanral are responsible for fencing along the N2.

Smith says that impounding animals on public roads is a City function. However, he concedes that the City's focus has been shifted towards attending to the 249% increase protest action.

According to Smith, erecting improved fencing is a better long-term strategy than constantly impounding animals.

He says that he's written to MEC Donald Grant asking him to meet with Sanral officials to discuss a way forward.

Enforcement on the N2 is technically a provincial competency and the issue of fencing lies somewhere between the provincial government and Sanral.

JP Smith, MayCo Member for Safety and Security

Impounding animals on public roads and road reserves is our function and we do an inordinate amount of it.

JP Smith, MayCo Member for Safety and Security

If you look at the constant loss of life, accidents and attacks on motorists, I think there are numerous compelling reasons to get the fencing fixed.

JP Smith, MayCo Member for Safety and Security

We've had a series of meeting on my request with the provincial government and Sanral in the past.
