Rescued a dog that cried for help when his owner buried him in a deep hole, and a surprise behind

In Khayelitsha, a township in Cape Town, South Africa, the principal of Luhlaza High School, Manono Makhaphela, decided to bury a small, injured dog named Lily alive because he saw her as a "big nuisance."

Makhaphela felt it necessary to guide his workers in the worst possible way to eliminate this so-called problem, as Lily was shouting for food on the school's playground. Fortunately, a cleaner named Bukelwa Mbulawa decided to report what had happened to Mdzananda Animal Clinic, saving Lily's life. A week later, on October 20, 2011, the woman was fired.

The rescue team had to move for nearly 20 minutes to find Lily, who was buried 1.5 meters deep in the school's tennis court. She was taken to a veterinary clinic, where they determined that a previous spinal injury was the cause of her paralysis in both hind legs. Luckily, she did not suffer any serious harm from what had happened.

Makhaphela was sued by the South African Revenue Service and brought before the Khayelitsha Magistrate's Court, where project director Jane Levinson provided counter-evidence.

Makhaphela was found guilty of mistreating, abusing, and neglecting animals. He was fined 6,000 rand, half of which was suspended for five years in exchange for him providing a project at the school to raise awareness of animal protection.

Marcelle du Plessis, the fundraising and media director of Mdzananda Animal Clinic, announced, "We appreciate the measures taken by these departments, and we can only hope that Makhaphela will comply with the July 18 deadline."

According to the development of their education program, he must submit progress reports to Mdzananda Animal Clinic every six months each year.

Although we know we need to keep a close eye on Makhaphela, we hope this is the beginning of justice for Lily. We do not know how long Lily can live, but we will never give up fighting for justice for her.

She is more concerned with being an example for future animal abuse cases than just being a dog.
