Just heard for the second time the TV3 report on the 1080 troubles.
They describe all the attacks that the anti group have been up to then state that there are “growing safety concerns on both sides”.
Most of the “growing” safety concerns would go away immediately if these clowns stopped creating them.
Perhaps if that happened the debate could go back to the pros and cons of dumping poison from airplanes to kill noxious pests.
In fact, the report seemed spend a lot of time on the protesters views, while brushing over the dangerous, illegal and deadly actions that they have been encouraging.
One thing that 1080 does not kill, is the ongoing desire of hundreds of West Coasters to have it banned.
No doubt a very vocal and very small minority.
Dan Lane says he has been trespassed from observing 1080 operations because of his opposition to the deadly poison
“We’ve obviously been kicked out so that we can’t carry on our operations to make sure that these guys are doing the right job,” Mr Lane said.
Yea, that dog your group killed clearly had nothing to do with it!
In recent weeks 1080 has been the focus of vocal opposition in Greymouth, pellets have been dumped on public buildings in Nelson and Wellington, while another incident has landed a West Coast man in court charged with assaulting a 1080 contractor.
Or maybe that might also have influenced the decision?
There is increasing concern from both sides of the 1080 debate. After the poisoning of a 1080 contractor’s dog last month, animal health board employees are being accompanied on operations by security staff.
The Animal Health Board says it is going to push on with the drops.
