    I suppose it might happen if NZ is carpet bombed relentlessly with 1080.

    Need a few squadrons of B-52's for that though. Just not a lefty govt's style.

    Fallow and goats are probably easier to control ( never heard of goats in that area) and again probably what's needed is permission for a a contractor to cover the area without boundaries which might be what the informant had in mind that they'd get the job.

    The photo under the Bush isn't pig damage. Unlikely for deer to build up to such levels close to town either (and falllow live on grass) so probably what they really need is a stock proof fence.
    I have a farm about 5kms (straight line) from Gebbie's Pass. No sign of pigs or goats there, or on my neighbours as far as I'm aware.

    Loving the hard-case responses to this article, but it's a bit of a worry what some people read into the news
    No if they were in a box trap that would be unsporting. The trap I saw on the Tele was about five metres across, so at that distance the pigs would have an even chance

    Pigs and deer been up there since 90s . I think it was 92 snow storm that deer escaped out of game preserve . Because Snow drifts where so high .

    With respect Bagheera, I think that's where your challenge would arise? Pig hunters and trust?
