GRAAFF-REINET NEWS AND VIDEO - On a recent episode of Carte Blanche, presenter Derek Watts visits Jansenville and Aberdeen to examines the legitimacy of an infamous video relating to the local mohair industry.
Angora goat farmers are hotly disputing the validity of this video’s footage which allegedly shows their goats bleating in distress.
In an already tenuous job market, a sensational video by an influential animal rights organisation is threatening to close down the mohair wool industry that has survived for over 150 years and ensures the livelihood of around 30 000 people in South Africa.
The video has caused several big name fashion brands to withdraw their use of mohair leaving the farmers and the multi-million rand industry in dire straits.
