Unfortunately the only way DOC or Council will act is when someone actually gets attacked,

Probably not even then. If the animal attacks someone, the animal is still protected under legislation.

When the shark killed that guy swimming off the west coast beaches (Piha?) It was a cop that went out and shot it, using 'emergency powers' as the cop deamed it was a threat to the public. He was still heavily critised for it by the lefty poof tree hugging vegetarians (no offence intended to people of non-binary gender identification in that comment)

I was once told, if you don't have anything useful to say, then don't say anything at all....

The purpose of a forum to to express and exchange opinions, if your sick of hearing about it, you don't have to come on here and read it, mate.

Vets aren't trained as to what gunshot wounds look like. Its not in their syllabus. They have no regular experience with gunshot wounds, so the chances of any vet being able to tell them apart from a puncture wound is minimal. More so, when you can't get near the animal...

It terms of asking a professional, you could ask a lawyer, accountant or engineer, if they were engaged with or working for the happy clappy's, you'd get the exact same emotive carry on, and they'd all say it was a gunshot wound. What do you call it? confirmational bias? 

There was never any objectivity around that call.

I once had a Samoyed that kept chasing the neighbours sheep. Noticed it had a sore paw and took her to the vet. He said it looks like a nail hole. Found out many months later that the neighbour had shot it. Shortly after the neighbour did a better job. Saved us both a heap of worry.


And this was with the dogs paw in the vets hand, not a photo

Westhaven just advised me to "express Caution" at Happy Teeth as seen near K pier, I thought that it had been awhile with whitebait mullet and parore present in recent weeks . So now she has come back for a feed. I would be happy if the nearby diggers could express one of their little whangarei boulders at her.

Leopard Seal kills snorkeller...


Who would have thought an Apex predator would do that?


Kirsty Brown was dragged underwater by the seal while snorkeling near Rothera research station on the Antarctic Peninsula.

Horrified colleagues from the British Antarctic Survey (BAS) scrambled a rescue boat and managed to pull Brown from the water. Despite trying to resuscitate her for an hour, the station doctor was unable to save the 28-year-old.
