Kingaroy Police have prepared advice for owners and managers of rural properties in the wake of protests by animal activists at farms in the Darling Downs region.
Officer-in-charge of Kingaroy Police, Senior Sergeant David Tierney, said police acknowledged the right for any person to engage in any lawful protest activity but also acknowledged the rights of landholders and business operators.
“If a property owner has any concerns or should any unauthorised persons attend their property, the owner should immediately contact police,” Snr Sgt Tierney said.
“Landholders who are concerned how to protect their property and what actions they can take are encouraged to follow the advice below.”
