Eight calves stolen
A PLANTATION SUPERVISOR is crying out for stiffer sanctions for farm theft after thieves took away eight of the farm’s Red Poll calves.
Nicole Greenidge, of Canefield Plantation in St Thomas, said the animals were stolen some time between April 16 and June 10. The sprawling, 400-acre dairy farm has over 400 cows.
Acknowledging that livestock theft was nothing new to the business, she, however, stressed that it was costing them big bucks and “it was time for it to stop”.
“Approximately ten to 15 calves are stolen each year,” she said. (SB)
