People are pretty mad about a video where a guy shoots cattle in a kraal. The NSPCA put it on Facebook, asking for info about the cattle shooter. In the video, you’ve got this dude in the kraal, armed with what looks like a shotgun, and he’s shooting a bunch of cows.
In the background, people are watching, saying stuff, and even laughing as the cows go down. It’s not easy to hear what they’re saying, but word is they’re speaking isiZulu, so it probably happened in KwaZulu-Natal.
Now, here’s the scoop: According to one member, the story goes like this – the guy paid lobola with these cows to marry someone, but that someone decided to play musical hearts. He couldn’t get his cows back, so he went cowboy on them.
The NSPCA got this video last week and shared it on social media, where it turned out this guy was out for revenge because his wife had been playing the field. No one’s sure how many cows got shot, but it’s clear these poor cows didn’t go down in one shot. The NSPCA did some detective work but couldn’t find this shooter, so they’re asking for your help. If you know anything, ring them up.
People on Facebook were quick to react – Barbara called it “savage,” Mercia said it was “bloody disgusting,” and Que Pasa just went with “disgusting.” Jill summed it up with “WTF,” and Khosana called the shooter a “Domkop.” So, yeah, folks are not thrilled about this cow-shooting spectacle.

Chinese Wind Power Giant Installs 14.3 MW Offshore Turbine in Just 30 Working Hours
Chinese wind energy company Goldwind has achieved a significant milestone by successfully assembling and installing a 14.3-megawatt (MW) offshore wind turbine in just 30 hours. The turbine was installed at the Zhangpu Liuao Phase 2 wind farm in Fujian Province, southeast China, developed by state-owned enterprise China Three Gorges (CTG).
This achievement is attributed to Goldwind’s strategic advancements in turbine installation, including improved conditions for tool disengagement, modular designs, and rotor pre-assembly. These enhancements resulted in a 26-hour reduction in lifting time and a 40% increase in overall efficiency.
The wind turbine installation vessel (WTIV) Baihetan was responsible for erecting the 14.3 MW turbine, following its previous successful installation of a 13 MW turbine at the same site. Chinese media reported that the 16 MW turbine set an electricity production record by generating 384.1 megawatt-hours (MWh) on September 1.
The Zhangpu Liuao Phase 2 offshore wind project, with a capacity of 400 MW, is expected to produce 1.6 terawatt-hours (TWh) of electricity annually, contributing to China’s clean energy goals by saving 500,000 tons of coal and reducing annual carbon dioxide emissions by 1.36 million tons.
In addition to its domestic achievements, Goldwind is actively exploring renewable energy opportunities abroad, including in Spain. The company is considering using its equipment in overseas projects and establishing production facilities in Spain to align with the EU’s Green Deal Industrial Plan.
Goldwind’s position as the top global wind original equipment manufacturer (OEM) in BloombergNEF’s rankings in March 2023 highlights its leadership in the wind power sector. This reflects the company’s significant contribution of 12.7 GW to projects in 2022, marking a key milestone in the global wind energy industry.
Goldwind, along with other Chinese turbine industry leaders, is expanding its presence internationally to secure foreign contracts and growth prospects, following the success of Chinese companies in securing contracts in regions such as the Middle East and India.
