newsflash from NZDA North Otago..

[i]We had a request from Robyn Bradley North Otago to notify everyone that there will be a public meeting on Thursday 8th March in the Hawea Community Centre from 4-6pm about an alleged imminent 1080 drop in the Timaru Creek area.
She has received this information from an unidentified caller who would not leave their name but would like as many people as possible to be aware of this meeting so there should be some representation at the meeting.
[/i]

This will screw with people's roar plans.  Embarrassed

Timaru Creek has been regulary 1080ed for years and for some reason it does not seem to affect the big animals in there.
It is very prone to rabbits and they can get really bad in there.

I am no fan of 1080 but it does keep the helicopters away from the stags

There should documentation sent out to hunting groups during early planning of operations. Check your local DOC office. If nothing has been sent out and a operation is imminent DOC have breached the ERMA guidelines.  At least you should be demanding the use of repellent.

Seriously, DOC policy makers need a dose of 1080.
