Deer mass-poisoned in 2012 – Taihape farmer speaks out

Further evidence from the Graf Boys’ channel from 2012. Educate yourself. Watch their Poisoning Paradise doco. Share their videos and let the world know how cruelly these animals die and how clean and green we aren’t.    

Published on Aug 8, 2012

Taihape sheep farmer – Allan Westerman – was looking for lost sheep after an aerial 1080 poison drop on the back of his property. What he found is disturbing. This is the same issue the SPCA spoke out against last week. A total of 10 poisoned deer were found, and it’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Every New Zealander should see how  the Department of Conservation treat our wild animals. Please spread this info far and wide.

If you are new to NZ’s 1080 poisoning program here is a good article to start with …


A must watch also is Poisoning Paradise, the doco made by the GrafBoys (banned from screening on NZ TV, yet a 4x international award winner). Their website is Their doco is a very comprehensive overview with the independent science to illustrate the question marks that remain over the use of this poison.

  1. This is so disgusting, I can barley contain myself.
    Pam, my partner and I spoke to the poison people late last year. They are contracted to lay everything from cyanide to feratox to take care of the ‘pests’ on behalf of the NZ Gooberment. I will never forget them laughing as they said that the 1080 had been doubled more than a year prior to our conversation. When we asked why they said “to Kill the deer, and the activists aren’t even aware yet”. We responded with “Well now they are”. These people were to stupid to realise they were talking to the wrong people.
    We live in an area that uses traps like America uses DU on Palestine. One eyed environmentalists thinking it’s ok to slaughter anything that might prey on their precious birds – YET they use 1080 like it is candy! We all know the ground based birds are wiped out every year by Keys capitalist pest program.
    Predator Free New Zealand Limited A public/private enterprise, which the government put up a dollar for every two raised by local government and private sector investors to tackle large-scale pest eradication projects.



  2. Totally heartbreaking and these people must have a below average IQ to do this and they live amongst us.
