    there are better options than using 1080, that article is saying everyone should rely on the crap.
    RULE 4: IDENTIFY YOUR TARGET BEYOND ALL DOUBT


    To be a Human is to be an Alien, ask the animals, We invade this world and we are killing it, we are destroying the earth and nobody gives a fuck except for the animals

    That bloody woman infuriates me. I spoke to her in Rotorua once and offered to take her into the bush to experience the silence after a 1080 drop. she was not in the slightest bit interested.
    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!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Yeh I am not happy. DoC don't need any bloody encouragement when it comes to spreading that shit.

    Do they ever "accidently" spread it on private land or are they at least good enough to stay away from there?

    I saw a trap being used on a program (NZ) targeting stoats, the adult female was attracted to bait at the end of the 'trap', she would rub her flanks/stomach over 'poison' (dont know which one) which her young
    would suck/lick off her when she returned to the nest.......goodbye next generation......... trap would stay active for months, not just one chicken egg which have to be replaced costing many 'man hours'.......

    would much rather see 'direct extermination' like this targeting specific species (this would work on rats too) rather than indiscriminate 'drop' which kills ALL species and gets into the water supply....

    Im not that naive to think it would eradicate all NZs pests, but this 'blanket poisoning' has to stop.....
    While I might not be as good as I once was, Im as good once as I ever was!
