Tracey Forté, president-founder of Wet Nose Animal Rescue Centre won her appeal in the Pretoria High Court early in May.

In March last year Tracy was sentenced to 18 months in prison or a R10 000 fine, suspended for five years, for “stealing” a German shepherd worth R3 000 from Jenny Brits in 2000, and giving it to Graham Jahme. The appeal was heard by two judges, Eberhard Bertelsmann and Cynthia Pretorius, who found that the state couldn’t prove theft.

Tracy claimed to have spent more than R25 000 in legal fees and said that this case did irreparable damage to her reputation as well as that of Wet Nose. She is adamant that she will be bringing a case against the state and the complainants for the damage
