EQUINE CRIME - POLICE MESSAGE

The theme for May from the Rural Affairs Team is equine crime.

Fortunately within Devon and Cornwall, equine crime is generally low. However, what we do tend to see, on occasion, is the theft of high value items of tack such as saddles and bridles and also items such as electric fencers and the batteries to power them. Over recent months there has been thefts of trailers including horse trailers. These incidents are both costly and inconvenient for horse owners. We have produced a basic guide to equine crime covering some of the key points, crime prevention and how to report incidents, PDF above.

Following on from Aprilís theme of FMPV theft we now have the short animation ready for sharing to re-enforce:

Many thanks Melissa
