Why the title End of pig hunting in NZ?
I looked at your link under news, and the story titled 'Pig surveys support TB eradication'.
I look it as good news for two reasons;
1st the statement that "pigs are carriers but can't pass TB on"!
Also if TB is absent in the surveyed pigs then this is good news for hunters and farmers in those areas!

Because they..like DOC, have a hidden agenda to eradicated all deer and pigs. How many will they kill to 'check for TB' ? They have already killed many deer and pigs in areas that are known to never have TB,Its called 'job justification'. Do some research and read between the lines,they are rallying farmers all over the country filling them with their unsupported 'facts' to gain support.The sad thing is a lot of people believe what they say.

id rather pigs and deer get eradicated then lose my source of income because of tb

but yes I agree there will be hidden agendas good or bad I guess we have to wait and see, but this stuff needs to be done even in tb free areas because so many muppets are illegally releasing/ moving around pigs and deer so theres always a risk of tb getting introduced to the area.

This doesn't make sense. Ospri are reducing the areas they do any control work in. And reduced their annual budget by 25% ($20 million pa).

Aren't we already TB free??? The rate is very low by world standards and we should declared TB free. They won't eradicate Tb while humans walk on earth. There are alway going to people who will alway try and beat the system, moving stock around that are not check etc.  They are totally worried about their jobs and wasting tax payer money.  Science has shown that deer a spill over hosts for TB.  TB free has NO MANDATE to target deer for TB vector control. I was send a letter from one of there people in 2015 stating that. Still the biggest spreader of Tb was on the back of trucks.

No, but that myth seems to be getting spread.

Technical bTB free status is after 3 consecutive years below 0.2% national TB infected herd annual period prevalence . We're not quite there yet, and the issue of TB in vectors would still be there. Movement control and vector control are both needed.

I don't think there is any proven techniques for pig control over large areas anyway.

They've been surveying pigs for tb for years. They actually pay hunters for pig heads donated for testing. The tokoroa pig hunting club is allowed to release pigs in the Pines there under this scheme so it can be positive for hunting

And when we are TB Free, work will need to continue to maintain that status. Its just a trade reality.

Love the have all the pigs in the States Eradicated.  People will be gone from this continent before all the pigs are.  Impossible to get rid off rid of and they destroy hay fields and any type of farming area.  Like trying to kill possums.  best you can do is knock them back for a while.
