The first farm attack took place, on 7 December 2019, in Rietspruit near Uitkyk, Nelspruit, Mpumalanga province.

Farmer Catherine Irving was brutally stabbed to death by 4 groids that attacked her in her home. She was taken into her home, tied up, assaulted and killed.

The groid apes fled with Irving’s firearm and cell phone.

Irving, who owned Shamroc Cattery and Kennels, was working outside when she was attacked by the coons.

The second attack took place at midnight, on 7 December 2019, in Steyns Hoek, Bothaville, in the Free State province.

A farmer was patrolling his sheep pens when he was overpowered by (the same) 4 groids, carrying Irving's stolen guns.

The farmer was badly assaulted and dragged back into his home where his wife was also attacked. The apes wanted to rape the woman but decided to rather strip the couple naked and tie them up with fence wire.
