Question posted in the General Law category relating to Mpumalanga


I would like to know - calves were stolen (min and from other owner nearby), me not knowing any better, the pound made me pay for the month in pound, then told me that in order not cut the pound cost I must take them into my possesion. They are in my care for ±2.5yrs still up to today.

The owner of the 2 calves want to come and fetch them, but has never contacted me so that we can arrange how to get them moved.

I contacted him.

what I want to know is, what is the time period (if there is) he had to come and collect them vs to leave them in my care to feed and care for them. Is there a cut-off time in which he had to collect them?
