    thats not good feel for the farmers. hope they manage to get the wild dogs as once they have that taste for stock killing it just gets worse as time goes on as most of it is not for eating just killing.

    Would be good if a few locals could get out there on the weekend to give them a hand.
    Put those thermals to use for a good cause!

    What the Fuck is an animal control officer if they can't control animals!!! Do they just shout "BAD DOG!" ???????

    "Nilsson said Far North District Council animal control officers had visited the farm and dropped off a dog trap.

    The officers were hamstrung because they couldn't shoot or use poison but she appreciated the gesture."

    Would be a welcome gesture me thinks. They've gotta be absolutely buggered working all day and then sitting out there all night. If I was closer I'd offer to help out just to give them a break. Be great to see a couple of good buggers who live close by and have thermals spend a night or 2 and tag some of them bloody dogs.

    I like the way you think @Micky Duck bloody top idea! You should let the farmer know that one! (Not being sarcastic).
    It's all fun and games till Darthvader comes along
    I respect your beliefs but don't impose them on me.

    Does seem a bit odd that an animal control officer has less power than a member of the public.

    @MB feel free to pass on my suggestion...tid up bitch in season within range of hidden marksman COULD help sort the issue......... heck even wolf packs used this technique to lure sled dogs away..before they turned on them and ate them.
    if this is indeed a pack of dogs....with luck the males nose (and willy) will lead them into danger one.
    I have heard of council ranger who used to drive around with in season bitch in van..in a crate...sat it on road side with doors open until dog jumped in,shut doors and back to pound....a double ended crate trap works too.

    If its anything like the old Waitakere Council, they wont have any rangers that have a FAL Until we went to the Super City, I used to get calls from some of the rangers when a firearm was called for.

    I'm going up there tonight with the thermal to give them a hand. For anyone who is interested here is a link to their facebook page where you can make contact and join their roster if you also feel like giving them a hand. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1252771098475249
