Miss­ing bat boxes

The Oban Times - - News -

THE THEFT of nine bat boxes has left po­lice of­fi­cers scratch­ing their heads.

The boxes were last seen at Suther­land’s Grove near Ben­der­loch on Septem­ber 22 and it is likely they had nest­ing bats in­side.

The theft of the boxes was re­ported to of­fi­cers on Novem­ber 12.

Bats are a pro­tected species un­der law and any act to dis­turb them is a po­lice mat­ter.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion in con­nec­tion with the al­leged theft should con­tact wildlife of­fi­cer Ken­neth Brack on 101 or speak to a uni­formed of­fi­cer.
