The Kempton Park Magistrates Court found Mr Ruan Verhoef guilty on charges of malicious damage to property.
In August 2016, Mr Verhoef became aggressive towards an NSPCA Inspector who was undertaking an inspection of a pit bull show in Kempton Park.
Mr Verhoef grabbed Inspector Nadia Hansa’s camera, removed the memory card, destroyed it and threw the camera back at her.
Inspector Hansa opened a case against Mr Verhoef, and he was subsequently sentenced to a fine of R4,000, suspended for five years.
The court also issued an order to pay the NSPCA R800, and he was declared unfit to own a firearm.
