Time to stop the poi­son­ing

Te Awamutu Courier - - News - SIGGI HENRY

In re­sponse to Anita Lass­man’s cau­tion­ary tale of 1080, I would like to con­grat­u­late her on the best story I have heard about 1080.

The ab­so­lute ob­ses­sion with dous­ing our clean, green, 100 per cent nat­u­ral coun­try­side with poi­son needs to stop.

I lis­tened to MP Mag­gie Barry last year on her elec­tion cam­paign trail talk­ing about pest-free by 2050. Her an­swer is more 1080.

Ap­par­ently ac­cord­ing to her only pos­sums, stoats and rats eat 1080.

I did chal­lenge her on that, but she was ex­tremely dis­mis­sive bor­der­ing on rude.

It is time to re­think and it is time for the Green Party to be ‘green’ and do some­thing about this ter­ri­ble prac­tice.
