In 1957 a 1080-poisoned horse was fed to local dogs leaving 250 of them dead

MORE THAN 250 DOGS KILLED BY 1080 POISON IN ONE HIT !
( Chatto Creek, Central Otago, NZ – ca. 1957 )

Story by Murray Ellis, via Karen Hore, posted by Carol Sawyer

Murray writes :

“Back in Chatto Creek in about 1957 the local Rabbit Board were dropping carrot slices laced with ‘1080’ poison out of Tiger Moths (aeroplanes) somewhere around Clyde. Stan Lewis was the boss and somehow his daughters gave their pet horse some of these left over carrots. The horse died. Stan, still not knowing what killed the horse, cut it up. He was in control of Rabbiters who had about 300 rabbiting dogs. He dropped some fresh meat off to each Rabbiter over a 50 km radius.
We knew Dan Engstrom and he had about 60 dogs at Chatto Creek. We got back from rabbiting and saw a large slab of fresh meat outside the front door. The dogs had not had fresh meat in a while, so Dan let 60 dogs attack the meat. Some just sniffed and walked away. Over 48 hours most of those dogs went crazy, frothing at the mouth, some strangled themselves on their chains.
We were 10-12 year old kids at the time ,and it left a horrible memory to see those dogs suffer. Only about 8 of those dogs survived . Other Rabbiters lost most of their dogs as well. So a simple accident can kill a horse, and the poison in the horse meat kill over 250 dogs. Even in the 1950’s they didn’t know what they where dealing with, and even now they probably still don’t know what they are playing with.”

A NZ hunter who shot a pheasant for the table found its crop full of 1080 poison

Thanks to the GrafBoys for this video clip which speaks for itself.

For those who are asking how come the bird was still alive? …  a comment from the GrafBoys: “The bird most certainly would have died, if not shot. There is a two hour or more, latent period before the effects of the poison are felt by the victim. Some animals, cold blooded, can take even longer before the poison kicks in. This bird would have been feeding on pellets in a drop area and may have flown across a forestry road where 1080 poison wasn’t laid. Often poisoned blocks are right next to unpoisoned ones.”

And were it pre feed, non poisonous pellets as some are suggesting, then that would change precisely nothing. The same bird and others like it are still going to eat the drop of real poison to come aren’t they? That is the purpose of the pre feed drop. So still the question remains for you … do you want to risk eating a bird that may have consumed 1080? You obviously can make up your own mind about that, however I would not touch any game captured in a 1080’d area, period.

So, in my opinion it goes without saying, if you hunt for your food, you should always check the stomach or crop contents for poison. This is the stark reality now as the authorities appear to be throwing all caution raised by health professionals to the wind. They need to be invoking the precautionary principle:

This principle is expressed in the Rio Declaration, which stipulates that, where there are “threats of serious or irreversible damage, lack of full scientific certainty shall not be used as a reason for postponing cost-effective measures to prevent environmental degradation.”

(Note, ‘cost effective’, corporate speak right there).

At any rate, if there’s any doubt … best to err on the side of caution. Remember the Indian family from Putaruru. They would not test for 1080 (until it was too late) which looks to be standard going by the testimony of the retired NZ Medical Doctor.

If you are new to the 1080 poisoning program, a must watch is Poisoning Paradise, the doco made by the GrafBoys (banned from screening on NZ TV, yet a 4x international award winner). Their website is tv-wild.com. Their doco is a very comprehensive overview with the independent science to illustrate the question marks that remain over the use of this poison. There are links also on our 1080 resources page to most of the groups, pages, sites etc that will provide you with further information to make your own informed decision on this matter.

Note: We aim to raise awareness by providing independent information on environmental poisons … and we don’t endorse violence.

You are entitled of course to accept or reject our information, however if you are pro poisoning of the environment, EnvirowatchRangitikei is not the place to espouse your opinions. Neither do we tolerate trolls. Mainstream would be the place to air your pro-poison thoughts, you already have an accepted platform. This is a venue for sharing the independent science you won’t of course find there.


POSTSCRIPT:

Predictably the damage control trolls have shown up on this post, both FB & in comments here. Many demanding was the bird tested? Time & date please? They don’t of course demand the same of DoC whose own records confirm they kill non target wildlife on an ongoing basis with nary a ripple of discontent from the pro poison people. Whose tracks are also covered by the total reluctance to test for 1080 poisoning (see our suspected 1080 poisoning page). I reiterate this is a warning bell to those who hunt for food. It is clearly becoming very unsafe to do so because of both poisoning and secondary poisoning.

 

The article clearly does not claim that the stomach contents were tested however, if you hunt for food and find similar gut contents that you sincerely believe are clover as one person suggests, then feel free to go ahead and eat. Bon appetit to you. Remember though, if you get sick like the Putaruru family, you likely won’t be tested for 1080 even if the attending doctors think you should. Good luck with that.

Tests in 2003 revealed an Inghams food product was GE contaminated

This is obviously quite old but worth a re visit. See how things were creeping in so very long ago? This is not that long after Corngate when the esteemed Helen Clarke let the secretly sown GE corn crops in various places throughout NZ be left to grow to harvest. She initially ordered them pulled up but I suspect corporate persuasion made her change her mind. How dishonest and treacherous can you get? Be aware Kiwis as the article says regarding animal feed, three years ago I rang two producers of chicken and pork here in NZ and neither would admit to GM feed for their livestock, however added they ‘couldn’t rule it out’ because the feed wasn’t labeled as GM. So much for GE free NZ. Like the green image it’s an illusion, a farce, a big LIE.  EnvirowatchRangitikei

Press release – June 5, 2003

Greenpeace today released results that show an Ingham frozen chicken product on sale in New Zealand is contaminated with genetically engineered (GE) soy ingredients (1). Earlier in the year, tests also revealed the Aussie-owned brand uses GE soy in its feed (2).

“Inghams are showing a total disregard for their customers preference – which is for GE-free food,” said Greenpeace campaigner Steve Abel. “Inghams continue to import GE soy meal into New Zealand for use in animal feed – and this latest test shows that Inghams are using GE soy contaminated ingredients in their products too.”

Greenpeace also criticised lax labelling regulations which mean GE feed and many processed ingredients don’t require GE labelling and enter the food chain by stealth.

The environmental organisation is encouraging the public to phone Inghams on 0508 800 785 and express their opposition to GE food. Greenpeace volunteers will be distributing postcards addressed to Inghams and demanding that they remove GE feed and ingredients from the food chain.

“Supermarkets and other users of Inghams products and feed should also demand that the company commit to a GE free policy,” said Abel.

New Zealand’s biggest poultry producer Tegel and their feed subsidiary NRM, shifted to a non-GE feed policy in 2001 following a public campaign by Greenpeace.

“Tegel have set the standard for excluding GE ingredients in animal feed. It’s time for Inghams to clean up their act and stop contaminating New Zealand’s food chain with unwanted GE,” said Abel.

The growing of genetically engineered crops threatens conventional production and the environment and GE foods are insufficiently tested and labelled.

Notes to the Editor:

(1) Inghams “2 Chicken Cordon Bleu” product made and purchased in New Zealand tested positive for GMO Roundup Ready (RR) soy in tests carried out by GeneScan Australia (AgriQuality) on 16 May 2003.

(2) Soy meal destined for Ingham feed mills in New Zealand tested positive for RR soy after tests by GeneScan on 14 March 2003.

You will also find if you google this that it is debunked on those debunking sites, as most valuable info the powers that be would prefer you didn’t know about is. If you find that too conspiratorial ask yourself why ever if GMOs are so safe, do THEY NOT WANT THEM LABELED? Consider also, why do these people who recommend GMOs not eat them themselves? Food for thought (no pun intended).

A recent interview with the poisoned Waikato family reveals more details about the ongoing DHB cover up

This latest interview is from the GrafBoys (TV Wild) revealing more from the family who were poisoned from eating wild pork, likely by all appearances from a 1080 treated area. Basically a trail of flip flops from day one, it all reeks of cover up in what looks like a scramble to exclude 1080 as a possible cause. I mean, not testing the meal for 1080 at all? Not testing the family’s urine until after the required timeline for testing has expired? This is not rocket science and it is not the first time the NZ health authorities have bungled in the field of testing for correct diagnosis. Back in 2006 a NZ medical doctor suspected 1080 poisoning as the cause of death in a young woman, and subsequently the NZ lab charged with testing her heart to confirm or rule out this possibility lost her heart.

Further comments from Waikato Regional Councillor Kathy White:

I’ve spent the last few weeks reading the medical notes of the Kochumman family that was poisoned through eating wild boar. Here are the things that have resonated with me: (1) the first working diagnosis by the registrar on the day the family was admitted to hospital was “consumption of meat containing poison used for possum/rodent killing ? neurotoxin ? 1080 ? strychnine poisoning which can produce a picture of lactic acidosis, nausea, vomiting, altered mental state and convulsions. Saying this, the differential remains wide, although we do not think this is infection … I cannot come up with an alternative pathology for raised lactate. May need to see if the police can test the meat for neurotoxins.”

If this was the working diagnosis from Day One, why did the authorities not test any of the food for 1080 poison or its metabolites? Why did they not test the patients for 1080 poisoning until 18 days later? The medical notes show doctors were waiting for a 1080 test result. And yet someone made the decision not to do these tests, or to at least delay them. Unfortunately, testing urine for 1080 18 days after hospitalisation does not fit with testing protocol and renders the test unreliable.

Kathy White is the Waikato Regional Councillor for Taupo-Rotorua. This is her personal view.

Calling out the Waikato DHB & MPI to respond to questions about the glaring inconsistencies in their procedures regarding the poisoned Putaruru family

Waikato Regional Councilor Kathy White, having read the finally released medical notes for the Kochumman family poisoned by wild boar in Putaruru, has raised some important questions. Developments with regard to the anomalies surrounding this case have been curious to say the least. Read our previous articles and posts on topic *below.

The questions that need to be asked of both the Waikato DHB and the MPI are:

(1) 1080 was the number one suspect, according to the poisoned patients’ medical notes. The Waikato DHB states that they have tested for 1080. However the date of the urine test was 18 days after hospitalisation, which is outside of the time that 1080 is detectable in urine (it is excreted from urine within seven days of ingestion – See Charles Eason’s Vertebrate Pesticides Toxicology Manual for further details). So why was this test not done within the correct time frame?

(2) (Incredibly) none of the meat collected by MPI has been tested for 1080. This was confirmed in a meeting with the WDHB yesterday. Why was it was not tested, when the patients’ medical notes say the wild boar meat should be tested for 1080?

(3) Why did they continue to say it was botulism when they knew early on that the symptoms didn’t fully align?

(4) Why has neither the WDHB nor MPI followed up with the person who provided the wild boar meat to Shibu’s family? This information is held by the WDHB. It could be a public health risk as this person has probably supplied meat to others.

*********************************

Responding to these issues was never rocket science. Why would the family’s meat not be tested for 1080? Why would you wait 18 days to test the family for 1080 knowing perfectly well that the results would be useless?

How safe people do you feel about eating your hunting catch now? These are all issues people have been trying persistently to address with little success as our country continues to be showered relentlessly with a poison that has no known antidote.
