- Du Toit and Others v Provincial Minister of Environmental Affairs and Development Planning, Western Cape [Province] and Others 2019 (1) SACR 311 (WCC)

Introduction
Main individuals and motor vehicles involved in this matter are -
1. Toyota Land Cruiser:
The driver at the time was a 16-year-old youth and the passenger was his girlfriend;

2. Toyota Hilux - a so-called one-and-a-half-cab bakkie:
The driver at the time was a Mr Du Toit and his passenger was a Mr Mocke; and

3. Department of Western Cape Nature and Environmental Conservation Officers Pietersen and Jullies.

Discussion
During the night of 11 December 2014 leading into the early hours of the morning of 12 December 2014, Pietersen and Jullies were on patrol duty in the Karoo near the town of Merweville in the Western Cape Province. While there, they stopped the Toyota Land Cruiser travelling on a public road. When the Land Cruiser, with an open load bed, came to a complete standstill, Pietersen, while standing close to the driver’s seat of the Land Cruiser, observed the horns of a kudu protruding (sticking out) from the back of the Cruiser. The horns were clearly visible to Pietersen from where he was standing. Pietersen then looked towards the back of the Cruiser and observed two kudu carcasses lying on the back of the vehicle in open and plain view.
