    Yah more poison

    Nelson SPCA tackles Brook Sanctuary poison drop plan | Stuff.co.nz

    The sanctuary trust wants to drop rodent poison brodifacoum once the pest-proof fence is completed, with the aim of wiping out rats, mice, possums, stoats, pigs, goats and deer. It has said that weka and falcons will also be at risk.

    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

    Blasdale also raised concerns that the indiscriminate nature of the poison meant there was a risk of secondary poisoning through native birds eating other poisoned animals.

    Nectar and insect eating native birds are probably safe from any harm...a Harrier Hawk is the only bird likely but probably not get secondary poisoning...and I wonder if they would administer Vitamin K to a Harrier.

    Dodds said..."You can receive some degree of population control through trapping but it is simply not possible to fully eradicate a whole population of introduced mammals any other way,".

    Bollocks...

    "it is simply not possible to fully eradicate a whole population of introduced mammals"

    by poisoning, the smarter ones learn.

    TRUTH - brodifacoum is cheap (and nasty).

    While I support the video and what they are trying to portray, I think whoever filmed that is worse than the crews applying the shit, Ffs shoot the poor dog.
    After I'd of shot the dog I'd of kicked the shit out of the camera guy for filming that shit.

    I don't understand the need to poison to poison this block. A shit load of people have volunteered their time to trap and place bait stations all over this reserve controlling the pests , then they get their predator fence built and they want to rub all those people's noses in it ,

    Thanks for your efforts but you guys can't get job done fast enough. Did they not stop to think those people might actually enjoy working a trap/ bait line. That once your fence is up its just a matter of keeping up the good fight , with no recruitment from outside for the pests and a solid trapping / hunting programme you will achieve your goal. Yes it will take time but hell thats why those people supported your fence and were there trapping and baiting in the first place so they can be part of the end result!

    They want to help clear the reserve of pests! Dumping poison over it won't encourage these people to put there hands up again.
