    Keeping New Zealand safe. one sheep at a time!

    Glad he had his "assault rifle" to stop this uhhhh.... threat. It gave him no option apparently?

    To be fair i know he's got a job to do and all the rest, but seriously dude, some better training wouldn't go a miss.

    Would have been a lot easier to open the gate and chase it through.

    nothing wrong with what he did, what better training would he require? I have seen a car completely written off from hitting a sheep and the driver just about killed in the process.

    Never argue with stupid people, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    By not trying to shoot a sheep with an AR on SH1 would be a good start.

    I thought he did well, as well as dealing with retard rubber neckers

    Well I'm sure the NZ police would be stoked if an "ordinary civilian" smoked someone's escaped sheep on the side of a public road with an AR

    What a hero

    he just wanted to play with his assault rifle best option would have been get cameraman to open gate and chase him in if that didn't work then shoot the cunt

    Just a bloke doing his job the best he can.
    He's neither a sheep farmer or a PR expert. Nor a gun nut or a trained marksman. He's just a country cop.

    He did good. And I bet he doesn't trawl the internet looking at hunting vids and then criticizing them publicly.

    This was on prime time free to air TV a year or so ago.
    I guess he shot it with an AR because it was a better option than the glock and that's all they are issued with. After seeing the hue and cry resulting from police chases ending badly I can imagine the grief if it had run out again and caused an accident.
    Police do a lot of things "ordinary civilians" shouldn't do.
    Its just a sheep.
