Welcome back to Country Cast. Some of the regular misconceptions on rural crime surround poaching and coursing, which is an offence generally committed by particularly well-coordinated perpetrators.
Poaching and coursing can be an intimidating issue to deal with, so this episode will explore some of the common methods used and how best to protect against them.
We also share some of the signs to look out for, identifying poachers and coursers by typical vehicles, behaviours, and how the non-farming community can be our eyes and ears, preventing such offences.
This episode of Country Cast covers:
- Misconceptions of what poaching and coursing are
- Common motivations behind poachers and coursers
- Hotspot areas to be aware of
- Typical behaviours observed and vehicles used
- How you can help prevent poaching and coursing
