Missing bat boxes
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.
