Walsh calls for answers as rural crime spirals out of control
Member for Murray Plains Peter Walsh is taking aim at the Victorian Government for allowing rural crime to spiral out of control.
Mr Walsh met with farmers last week, who told him they were fed up with losing livestock to theft.
Mr Walsh said it was not the fault of police, but rather the government for its resourcing of police numbers.
“The Nationals are acutely aware of the significant toll livestock and other on-farm theft takes on our farmers – both emotionally and financially,” Mr Walsh said.
