The SPCA says it will lay criminal charges against a Cape Town man who appears to have deliberately killed two goslings in the CBD on Friday.

A family of Egyptian geese were crossing the road at the corner of Spin Street and Adderley Street, when the man drove over them, despite being warned by pedestrians at the traffic lights.

She says the SPCA has already begun tracing the man based on the number plates.

Abrahams believes that that the evidence will help with a successful prosecution.
