NZ’s Tokoroa is hiring a shooter to cull feral cats – watch out for your cat

Remember, all non native species to go … we’ve been hearing murmurs of doing away with cats for some time now, thanks particularly to Gareth Morgan. In Aussie they’re dropping 1080 laced sausages for them. Moving along everywhere isn’t it. Still, shooting them in a built up area is hardly responsible is it? EWR

SHOOTER HIRED FOR CAT CULL

From stuff

A controlled cat culling in a South Waikato town in which “feral cats” were shot has alarmed nearby residents who say it’s unsafe to be shooting in such a built up area.

There were also concerns that their own pets could easily have been mistakenly shot.

Residents in Tokoroa’s Clyde St, which has a primary school and kindergarten, were horrified to learn numerous so-called feral cats had recently been shot in the area.

Senior Sergeant Jason Henderson confirmed a professional pest controller had shot the cats with an air rifle designed for pest control purposes.

He’s believed to have been hired by a local agency although who is behind the cull is mystery. Local shopkeepers, the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA), South Waikato District Council, and kindergarten have all denied being involved. Staff at the school said they were also not aware of the incident.

“As part of his processes he notified police of his activities which is done by all professionals working in the pest control industry but we do not give ‘permission’ … because there is no ‘permission’ to be given,” Henderson said.

“As professionals it is up to them to ensure all safety measures, appropriate equipment and considerations are taken into account.”

But residents spoken to by Stuff said they had no idea the operation was to take place.

“We’ve got a little kitten and although other cats do come around I wouldn’t go around shooting them,” he said.

“I’ve heard talk that an elderly couple in the street reported them which led to it being organised. It is very concerning.”

Community Animal Rescue and Education (CARE) operations manager Helen Rabinska was shocked on hearing cats in a residential area had been killed by a pest controller.

“There is no way a pest controller would be able to tell the difference between an unowned cat and one that has an owner,” she said.

“Legally a cat is someone’s property just like a car or television. You can not just go around shooting cats,” she said.

SPCA chief scientific officer Doctor Arnja Dale said the society was not informed about the planned cull.

“The SPCA is not, and has never been, a pest control agency and did not give permission for the culling of any cats, nor did we play any part in it,” she said

“If these cats were in contact with human habitation then they are stray cats, rather than feral,” she said.

South Waikato District Council communications manager Kerry Fabrie said the council was not involved and was powerless to intervene.

“There is no legislation governing cats, unlike the Dog Control Act which governs dogs which we enact,” she said.

Henderson said legal action was unlikely.

“Having spoken to the pest control contractor involved in this incident I am confident he covered off all his requirements,” he said.

Ex arms control officer says gun licensing procedures not followed for Christchurch shooting accused

Note: I suspect the authorities were busy at the time chasing NZ environmentalists. EWR


From tvnz

A former head of gun licensing claims the man charged with the Christchurch mosque shootings wasn’t interviewed in his home and his references came from online chatroom acquaintances. 

Guns and gun ownership have dominated discussion since 50 people were killed and another 50 injured at two Christchurch mosques last Friday – one of the big questions being, “How did this happen?”

One ex-cop and arms control officer, Joe Green, says he’s got a source alleging gun licensing procedures weren’t properly followed.

“I would sooner not disclose exactly who that person is, but who I think is a highly reliable informant,” Mr Green told 1 NEWS,

The informant’s damning information claims the alleged gunman’s application wasn’t lodged in Dunedin where he lived, but filed in Waikato.

The source also says no relatives were interviewed and that authorities instead talked to two referees the accused allegedly met in a chatroom, and there are now doubts over whether a home visit and security inspection took place.

“Visiting a person’s house enables you see what their lifestyle is like. You might see a little bit of the stuff they get up to,” Mr Green said.

This afternoon, Police Commissioner Mike Bush said the vetting process behind how the alleged gunman got a license is under major review.

“That’s a very important phase of our investigation. We’re working through everything we know about the person who is charged with this horrendous offence,” he said.

But almost a week after the attack, Mr Bush couldn’t answer key questions, including whether the Dunedin-based suspect applied in Waikato.

“We’ll be working through every one of those suggestions so that when we answer you we can definitively, having known all the facts,” he said.

Mr Bush couldn’t say whether the accused used online acquaintances as referees.

“We’ll be working through that as a phase of the inquiry. When I have all the answers, definitively, I will share them.”

Nor could the Police Commissioner say whether a face-to-face interview was done.

“That’s part of what we’re working through.”

Mr Green said: “You’re looking for a needle in a haystack with firearms licensing. You’re looking for that one person in a thousand who’s going to go bad.”

Pressure is mounting on police now for answers – and soon.

A researcher, author & international speaker of 36 years who has exposed & stopped several planned massacres discusses the recent Christchurch shootings

Our deep condolences to the victims of the recent shootings in Christchurch. We intend no disrespect to them in wanting to examine this issue. We simply wish to help folk make sense of what has happened. Understandably many are afraid & the excellent research & clear head of Ole brings some sanity into the situation. 

In the two videos below, interviews by both Lambremont Webre & NZ’s Vinny Eastwood, Ole Dammegard describes how he has managed to predict 15 massacres over a period of four years. He is also believed to have managed to expose and stop several planned massacres.  From his site: “Truth Seeker, Code Breaker and Peacemaker Ole Dammegard, awarded the Prague Peace Prize, and adopted by the Apache Nation, is an author, International speaker, former journalist, musician, artist and investigator, who has dedicated the last 35 years to researching many of the global conspiracies. “  You can read more about Ole’s work at the link.

Please read the info below each video at Youtube for links to relevant sites and further information (click on the YT icon bottom right of screen). One interview was taken down by YT overnight before it could be posted, as also was Vinny Eastwood’s original live interview midstream. Fortunately I’ve been able to embed that here from Facebook.  You can view further of Vinny’s videos at YT.

 

 

NOTE: Unfortunately regarding the second interview by Vinny Eastwood, it has been removed from Youtube. As also was the replacement video I put here. As censorship of this event grows you need to be asking yourself why? Do research it for yourself.

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.

Baby Tahr left to die of cold & starvation as Sth Island cull gets under way, right on calving

The cruelty of this killing frenzy knows no end it seems. NZ’s ‘predator free 2050’ scheme aims to rid us of ALL introduced, non-native species except farming stock.

They are already coming for your cats. Of course they failed to fill us in on all of this finer detail. That would involve divulging all they signed us up to decades ago. Do read that article at the first link by Jenese James. It is very enlightening on the culling topic. If you keep your eyes open & read between the lines you may have noticed culling is becoming a common word (not to mention either the extinction of species!). One I saw not too long ago was the culling of Canadian Geese off Palmy’s Lagoon in Centennial Drive. It shocked onlookers & took place in the school holidays where children could have seen it. This scheme has already been condemned by two academics as being unrealistic. You don’t have to even be an academic however to figure it’s unrealistic, or cruel. Not rocket science really.  It’s been said by more than one notable person that a nation can be judged by the way it treats its poor and vulnerable, and its animals.  NZ, once a welfare state, is now found seriously wanting on all counts of that one.

Following is information on the Tahr cull from Carol Sawyer.

TAHR CULL UNDERWAY – BABIES LEFT TO DIE OF COLD AND STARVATION (Please share)

It has come to my notice, from an extremely reliable source, that at least two helicopters were working for the Department of Conservation last weekend – carrying out the Tahr cull (the one that Eugenie Sage said would not now be carried out until next winter) in the designated Tahr cull area that was organised prior to the fatal Wanaka helicopter accident on 20 October, 2018.

One helicopter flew out of Manapouri and a second involved is allegedly Wanaka-based.

The Dept of Conservation is crying out for more money​,​ and yet the helicopter from Manapouri would have had a three hour return trip, I’m told, at a cost of at least $1,500 per hour plus GST​ – ​ just to position it for the Tahr cull. There are several helicopters closer that could have been used instead.

The helicopter from Manapouri was carrying a DoC biodiversity officer to do the shooting.

Baby Tahr left to die of cold & starvation without their mothers

The Tahr are calving now. I’m informed the babies would probably not have been seen, as they are “planted” for the first two weeks of life, in a similar manner to deer – with Mum coming back to feed them. They will have been left to die of cold and starvation.

I have also heard via a​ second​ source, a shocked helicopter owner, that DoC are shooting the nanny Tahr in the guts so they go away and die invisibly in the bush, presumably in severe pain. If they were visible their skeletons would be visible for several years. This way they are hidden from public view. I SO hope this is not true!
