DoC declines a farmer’s request to extend the buffer zone around a 1080 drop in order to protect his lambing & calving animals

All this, as NZers rally at many points throughout NZ & in Wellington at Parliament, in protest against the aerial drops of 1080 on the land.

Prefeed was scheduled to be dropped on 6 Sept.

This email was received by a farmer in the area, who tried to get a bigger buffer zone as he has lambing and calving going on, but DoC refused. He has to contend with a 200 metre buffer zone – it is not enough !

They told him on the phone yesterday that the poison itself will be dropped next week :

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 Animal Health Board, and the Department of Conservation treat valued, wild animals. Please spread far and wide, and please visit tvwild.co.nz and vote on whether you would like to see the users of 1080 poison prosecuted for mass-scale, animal cruelty…


Deer Mass Poisoned – 1080 Dropped Directly into Streams that Flow into Lake Taupo – Farmer Speaks Out

Untitled9

More indiscriminate poisoning of paradise, the no longer clean green Aotearoa. As the farmer points out, “they do the drops, and they walk away. They never see the aftermath like we see.” If you feel 1080 is safe and nothing to worry about, please watch the Graf Boys’ videos on Youtube (see our 1080 pages for links). Real eye openers!  And remember the NZ corporation parading as a government has vested interests in its continued use with recently revealed investments in the poison.

Deer Mass Poisoned – Lake Taupo Farmer Speaks Out

On the 3rd Of July 1080 poison bait was spread across 50,000 hectares of the Hauhungaroa Ranges, which are situated on Western Bays of Lake Taupo.

Beef and sheep farmer Lance Aldrige was informed by a farm hand that he had found four poisoned deer laying on the farm four days after the aerial operation was completed. A field trip was arranged so that Waikato Regional Councillors could be shown the impacts of the resource consents their Council issues.

Many more poisoned deer were found as the group made their way around the farm and bush edges. Lance Aldridge has had to endure the impacts of aerial poison drops for over 30 years ” This is the sort of thing a lot of people don’t see. They do the drops, and they walk away. They never see the aftermath like we see.” He goes on to explain on camera how the operations are difficult to live and work around.
