Joint campaign to tackle theft of livestock launches today

A new campaign to combat livestock theft is being launched today.

It follows a significant rise in the number of animal thefts from farms across the country.

Members of the Gardai, Crimestoppers and the Irish Farmers Association have joined forces to launch the campaign against cattle rustling, in an effort to increase the detection rates for the theft of cattle and sheep from Irish farms.

It also aims to provide advice to livestock owners on the best possible ways to combat this type of crime.
