    Herald Article - Pig hunter rescued in Bay of Plenty

    A pig hunter has been rescued in Bay of Plenty. Rescuers have braved high winds and driving rain to fly a hypothermic pig hunter out of Lake Rotomahana in the Bay of Plenty. The 42-year-old Rerewhakaaitu man was reported missing after he was separated from his hunting party in heavy rain on Sunday afternoon. Police searchers found him in an area above a series of precipitous bluffs at about 10:15am this morning. He had to be evacuated by helicopter because of his worsening condition and the inclosing weather.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
