Anti-poaching posters launched

The Northern Ireland branch of the British Deer Society (NIBDS) has welcomed the Police Service of Northern Ireland’s (PSNI) anti-poaching poster initiative, started to support its Operation Wild Deer, which was launched in 2012.

Greg Kane, chairman of the NIBDS, said: “Operation Wild Deer, in which a wide-ranging group of organisations joined in partnership with the PSNI to combat poaching in the Cookstown area, has already made a valuable contribution to help address this form of rural crime in the Mid-Ulster area. The posters and leaflets being launched will serve to reinforce this anti-poaching message.”
