Yea some follow up would be good. To often these sorts of things leave the media and nothing is learnt from it.

couldn't be 1080 could it or could it be something they ate with it... I'm on newstalk hoskings  at 7 am... I think its important we dont gettoo carried away until we know what it is.... but its pretty unheard of to get poisoned by fresh wild meat... unless it was really sick and then you would think cooking it would have done it... and you would know when you gutted it or looked at it..

It could be poison especially with the reaction time, could also be botulism but quick internet search reckon reaction time normally 16 to 30 hours however can be as fast as 6 hours. Wait for the results I spose

to react that quick, no it couldn't
And theyd have to eaten the organs full of 1080 to get a lethal dose, I imagine
Theres probably several possible causes, more likely than 1080.

1080 human poisoning systems from Wikipedia
Symptoms      Edit
In humans, the symptoms of poisoning normally appear between 30 minutes and three hours after exposure. Initial symptoms typically include nausea, vomiting, and abdominal pain; sweating, confusion, and agitation follow. In significant poisoning, cardiac abnormalities including tachycardia or bradycardia, hypotension, and ECG changes develop. Neurological effects include muscle twitching and seizures; consciousness becomes progressively impaired after a few hours leading to coma. Death is normally due to ventricular arrhythmias, progressive hypotension unresponsive to treatment, and secondary lung infections.[5]

Botulism symptoms
These symptoms all result from muscle paralysis caused by the toxin. If untreated, the disease may progress and symptoms may worsen to cause paralysis of certain muscles, including those used in breathing and those in the arms, legs, and trunk (part of the body from the neck to the pelvis area, also called the torso). People with botulism may not show all of these symptoms at once.

In foodborne botulism, symptoms generally begin 18 to 36 hours after eating a contaminated food. However, symptoms can begin as soon as 6 hours after or up to 10 days later.

If you or someone you know has symptoms of botulism, see your doctor or go to the emergency room immediately.

Have you had a look on Facebook? No doubt all the answers are there.  Smiley

Saw a Dr quoted as suspecting botulism?
