Thread: Police Humane Dispatch Volunteering

    Police Humane Dispatch Volunteering

    I am guessing there must be some on here who already do this?

    If so would you like to share your first hand experience?

    There is a call for some additional volunteers in my area, I am considering it.

    +1 Having a call at 3am, waking up the house hold getting the cabinet open, starting the wagon......

    Getting stopped on the way to the job because your vehicle shows up with firearms in the early hours of the morning.............
    Waking up the house hold when you put the rifle back....only to get up at 6 to go to work...

    Let them do it........

    Stalking is very much like going to the night club

    You can always tell an Essex Boy, just you cant tell him much...

    An hour in the field is worth a week of typing trash.....

    recently had need to stop at a deer/car accident, Munty hit by car (driver then buggered off!) and lying in middle of road trying to get up.called the Police and asked for a Deer Warden to attend, they said they would try, or would see if they could get an ARV to site.
    I was prepared to deal with the Deer up to the point when the other involved people realised what that meant, then the problems started! short story I moved the Deer off the road, and kept it off the road until it went into shock (it had kept trying to run back into the road and could have easily caused another accident)
    in the end one copper turned up and the deer went off with a couple of assistants from the local vets!
    I have just had an email from BASC and it seems TVP is recruiting wardens.so maybe they didn't actually have any on that day. definitley a thankless task.

    I tend to get called quite often, it is a thankless task but I prefer to think I am saving a Deer from suffering needlessly by attending as quick as I can.
    My wife is a very understanding lady and I love her for it.
    I have never been 'stopped on the way' or hassled by any bystanders once I explain the situation and feel that I am doing a worthwhile service to the Deer even tho I would prefer it not to be neccessary.
