Hauraki Herald - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS -

There has been much dis­cus­sion in the press lately about the up­com­ing 1080 poi­son drops in our hills.

On the one hand you have the De­part­ment of Con­ser­va­tion (DOC) and For­est and Bird push­ing the poi­son.

On the other hand you have those residents who live next door to the poi­son zones.

1080 poi­son is dropped into the streams in the hills be­hind their homes and these streams flow through their lands.

Poi­soned an­i­mals wan­der onto their prop­er­ties and poi­soned birds die on their front lawns.
