A south Armagh farmer has been arrested today after it was discovered he was using Romanian migrants as ‘human scarecrows’ we can reveal.
It is thought the Romanians are living in fear of being deported due to Brexit concerns and local farmers are exploiting them, even using them as “human scarecrows.”
We spoke to one farmer Romanian Scarecrow who told us:
“Although I couldn’t run away, I could move my arms and that helped me to keep warm as well as scare the birds. Sometimes my arms became too tired to move and the birds would sit on me and shite on my head so I screamed angry Romanian folk curses. The farmer didn’t pay me but he let me have a raw turnip every day. I would eat half and save the rest to send back to my family.”
