A bull mastiff is recovering after being buried alive on the Cape Flats.

Newsflash News Agency reports that the dog was found in a shallow grave in the Summer Heights area of Kuilsriver on Thursday.

Spokesperson for the SPCA Sarah Scarth, says they received a call from someone claiming that he could only see the part of the dog’s head.

As a result an inspector from the animal association dug the dog out of the grave.

The dog has since been named Lazarus.

It is believed the dog have been in the hole overnight and was in a very bad condition when found.

At the moment Lazarus is recovering in the high care section of the SPCA’s animal hospital in Grassy Park.

Scarth says the culprit, if caught, would be charged under the Animal Protection Act with cruelty.
