Ten days ago, I visited a Taupo farmer who had found ten dead deer on his property and along his fenceline after the 1080 poison drop in the Hauhungaroa Ranges. This man has previously had cattle confirmed poisoned through diagnostic testing, and has had eight working dogs killed. This latest incident has made him angry and worried that there are other poisoned animals on his property that he has not found. He believes he shouldn’t have to put up with these kinds of biosecurity risks that are not of his making on his own land. – Kathy White

Here is the difference between the right vandalising political signs, and the left.  The right tend to do it constructively, whereas the left are just expressions of anger and spite.  Read more »

Israel has blockaded the Gaza strip by land, sea, and air since 2006, resulting in plummeting living standards and health services, high unemployment, and severe food insecurity, according to the United Nations.  Read more »

From teenage refugee’s axe attack on German train passengers to the Munich massacre – her grand immigration plan isn’t looking so grand these days.

The Germans have no true idea of the type of people who were allowed into their country as a result of their leader Angela Merkel’s decision to open Germany’s doors wide during the biggest migration crisis in Europe since World War II.

Certainly, the German Chancellor’s highly controversial move provoked a headlong rush, not only from terror-ridden Syria but from the rest of the troubled Middle East, Africa, South Asia and the Balkans, too. Read more »

The cost of petulance

After refusing to endorse Donald J Trump, Cruz lost 25% of his Facebook “friends” and more than half of his major sponsors.

Let’s hope he thought it was a fair price to pay not to be a team player and continue to split the GOP.

He’ll get some respect.  He won’t get another go.

Meet Koda who serves in our Defence Force:

The New Zealand Defence Force has given their working dogs flying lessons – kind of.

It wasn’t quite teaching old dogs new tricks, more like re-training them on dealing with flying in helicopters.

Military working dogs coordinator Sergeant Jeremy Drummond says it was a great chance to get the dogs and their handlers a refresher course.

It gets the dogs, which are used for search and rescue, tracking and force protection, comfortable with being airlifted into difficult terrain.

Sgt Drummond says it will also lessen the amount of stress the dogs feel during such an operation.

After a pre-flight safety briefing at the RNZAF Base in Auckland on Friday, each team was winched aboard an NH90 and then winched off again.

These dogs are also used by New Zealand Police.   Working dogs are awesome.  What sort of society would not want those?
