FIREWORKS lead to the deaths of four dogs over the festive season.
According to Jan du Toit of Kempton Park SPCA, one of the most gruesome cases they had to deal with was when a dog hanged itself on a wall.
According to him the animal, which was chained, tried to jump a wall and in the process killed itself.
One dog was put to sleep as a result of the injuries it sustained.
The society received 91 calls and over 100 SMSs from concerned residents.
Thirty stray dogs and two cats were also taken in.
