    Poaching

    Second suspected sheep rustler bailed

    A second man has appeared in court following an incident in Hukerenui in which fed-up farmers blocked a road to stop a pair of suspected sheep rustlers escaping.

    Michael Paul Ross, a 42-year-old farm worker from Motatau, appeared in the Kaikohe District Court last week charged with possessing a .22 rifle without a licence and killing a sheep with the intention of stealing its carcass.

    Ross was arrested at a home in Kawakawa where police also seized a rifle they believe was used to kill a pregnant ewe. He was remanded on bail until October 6 when he is next due back in court.

    Another man, Bernard Tipene, 47, appeared in court earlier charged with theft and is due back in court on October 19. He was also granted bail.

    The charges relate to an incident on September 5 when Hukerenui farmers, sick of losing hundreds of animals to poachers, boxed in a vehicle used by two men they believed had killed a ewe on a Monument Rd farm.

    Police said the suspects found their exit blocked by a farmer's vehicle, so did a U-turn and were chased until they reached a one-way bridge blocked by another farmer's vehicle.



    Police said one man fled with a firearm across paddocks towards a river while the other remained in a 4WD vehicle with the dead sheep.

    If it's a robbery on someones land, with a firearm, it IS armed robbery!

    Some unfortunate nut sack low life rustler will one day soon find himself shot by a fed up farmer. I will only feel sorry for the farmer, these guys will be driving a fair distance to their target, that's enough time to think, but they choose to park up, go look for live stock and poach.

    Oh I can't wait for the news headlines, poacher shot dead, leaves behind young family. The comments from people, he was such a nice guy, wouldn't hurt a sole blah blah blah. Ffs you gonna do the crime, then accept whatever happens to you.

    Get the feeling that I'm sick and tired of reading that these wankers are targeting hard working farmers ?dam right

    The courts have an opportunity to curb this along with other agencies and the community.
    I would hate to see a farmer killed because of a poacher, it'd be a national tragedy.

    Rant over....

    pretty big nuts from the farmers to risk stopping people with a gun
    just shows their frustration with poaching of livestock.

    I wonder how many missing persons cases are just poachers that got caught by the wrong farmer.
