Welcome to Country Cast, a podcast that promises to bring awareness to some of the rural crime happening in the Dorset area, and most importantly how you can prevent it. We’re opening up this series with a look at protecting farmers’ livestock, and dealing with a lesser known type of crime - livestock worrying.
Worrying of livestock can sometimes happen almost unknowingly, but scaring a farmer’s livestock - particularly those currently breeding - can result in mental and financial harm to those involved.
This episode of Country Cast covers:
- What livestock worrying is
- The lesser considered consequences of livestock worrying
- Safety risks with worrying larger livestock
- How people can spot, prevent and report it
