Welcome back to CountryCast, where we have another opportunity to hear directly from a member of the farming community. Creating a mosaic of experiences from various people’s perspectives on crimes like theft and poaching help us to better prepare ourselves for preventing such offences.
Our guest on this episode talks about some of the measures he’s put in place to help deter would-be criminals, considers how best to handle the mental toll of being on the receiving end of rural crime, and the vital assistance that comes from the community when we all stand together.
This episode of CountryCast covers:
- Identifying common criminal behaviour, and the frequency of poaching
- The financial and mental impact of rural crime
- Preventative measures like ditches and gates
- The collective strength from standing together and reporting any suspicious activity
