Low-flying helicopter spooks livestock

One of the Island's local authorities is urging livestock owners to come forward if their animals have been spooked by low-flying helicopters.

Garff Commissioners shared a post on Facebook from the Manx Farming and Food Matters page, revealing some farmers in the Corrany Bridge area have been affected.

The incidents happened on Thursday, resulting in livestock going through the fences surrounding the area.

Two farmers have since recovered their livestock, but the Commissioners are worried other owners in the area may not yet be aware their livestock is missing.

The local authority wants anyone who was affected by this incident or similar incidents in the future to get in touch.
