Gildernew urges vigilance after cattle theft
Sinn Féin Fermanagh and South Tyrone MLA Colm Gildernew has urged farmers to be vigilant after two separate incidents of cattle theft in Aughnacloy.
Colm Gildernew said:
“The theft of these cattle in Aughnacloy will have a huge impact especially financially on the farmers.
"I would urge all farmers in the area to work with the PSNI in branding livestock and setting up a farm watch scheme, as a coordinated approach to this crime is needed.
“If we are to lessen the amount of crime on farms we need the entire rural community to work together and be vigilant in order to disrupt the criminal gangs that prey on farmers.”
