The South African Society for Prevention of Cruelty Against Animals opened a case against the pastor late last week. The association says it will pursue a criminal case against him.
SPCA inspector Mishack Matlou said:
"We are conducting a preliminary inquiry with an intention of opening a criminal case against him. What we saw in the pictures is cruel. Imagine being eaten alive! This has to stop. He (the pastor) has now been charged with animal cruelty and will appear in court on Monday."
The Interfaith Council of South Africa's spokesperson while condemning the actions of the self-acclaimed prophet says the state cannot intervene because there is freedom of religion in South Africa and it’s up to religious leaders to self-regulate.
The controversial pastor appeared before a magistrate court in Pretoria yesterday and was granted bail of $120 (£77).
