Security measures

  • Install CCTV
  • Keep hedges, fences and gates in good repair
  • Note down vital information, inc. vehicle details and registrations

Inspector Jon Grainge of North Yorkshire Police said whilst the timeframe was relatively extensive, rural thefts of this nature were ‘not necessarily immediately obvious to farmers’.

 

He reiterated the message farmers should remain vigilant and be aware for anything unusual.

 

“The difficulty with the nature of this crime is that is it not necessarily immediately obvious to farmers, who may only be able to identify their shortfall at the time of bringing sheep in to scan or worm – this often gives a very wide timeframe for us to work with,” Insp. Grainge said.

 

Unusual

“Lines of enquiry are limited, and this is where we need the public’s help to call in suspicious movements of animals, or animals appearing in fields unexpectedly.

 

“If you notice anything unusual – a different person attending to a flock, or offers or sheep of goats for sale either for meat or as stores – please contact us.

 

“If you are able to get any names, vehicle details, and registrations or even partial registrations we would like to know.”

 

Anyone with information is urged to contact North Yorkshire Police on 101, quoting ref. 12170087325.
