Keeping Livestock, our Wardens and road users safe

Submitted by Steve on 12:02, 21st Jan, 2021 | 0

Almost every day (and night) our ambulance staff and volunteer wardens are called out to animals, especially cows, sheep and horses that have escaped from their fields and are loose on the Island’s roads putting them in grave danger.

Working at night to contain animals can be very dangerous for our volunteers who have been known to spend 2-3 hours trying to identify and locate owners and then wake them from their slumber so we can get the animals to safety.
