    1080 Doco - Poisoning Paradise

    Anyone seen this? Just stumbled across it on YouTube:

    Poisoning Paradise - Ecocide New Zealand

    Some pretty interesting stuff. A lot of discredit put on studies that DoC have commissioned. It's only one side of the argument of course, but there seems very little scientific evidence to support the current use of 1080.

    In the interests of balanced discussion, the Sodium fluoroacetate Wikipedia page for example references 63 scientific sounding papers alone.

    It does, yes, but most of them relate to toxicology, or guidelines for use. I see a couple relating to water sampling and number 33 also sounds relevant - "Do toxic baits containing sodium fluroacetate (1080) affect fish and invertebrate communities when they fall into streams?" There's also a couple relating to birds, but I think these are the same studies that were ripped apart and discredited in the doco.

    We're probably all biased as, to put it bluntly, the less things that are poisoned, the more there is for us to hunt.

    What bothers me the most after watching it is the possible water related issues, and how badly the DoC commissioned studies were rubbished. Seeing all those pellets in streams and with various things eating them was an eye opener. Also farmers being paid off for livestock poisoning and having it paid as, "stock feed," or, "track repairs," is dodgy as all fuck.
