In Winterveld, near Pretoria, in South Africa it has been reported that the locals are blaming witchcraft for the freak birth of kittens to a dog.
The dogs owner Elijah Mhlanga said: "On Monday my grandchildren called me and said Vodi had given birth to kittens. I did not believe them. I thought the puppies just looked like kittens to them." On seeing his dog he was shocked.
Meshack Matlou from the Animal welfare, said: "We will do some tests and the results will tell us what happened," and that he had never seen this type of thing before.
