How long before the howls of outrage?

Look at these cute kids…fundraising for their school by knocking over goats and other feral pests. They look so chuffed.

There’s been plenty of kills and thrills for the young ones at the third annual Wild Game Hunt and Fishing Competition in the rural Waikato area of Tauhei.

The contest, which started yesterday, is a Tauhei Combined School fundraiser. 

Organiser Angela Martin says it’s a great way for kids to have fun and help their school in the process.

Money from previous years bought IT equipment for the school, but this year’s is going towards a shaded outdoor area.

Lindsay Lammas, 6, says the best part is hunting with his family. “We’ve been night-eeling and caught one eel. This morning we went goat shooting, and my Dad got four or five,” Lindsay said. “It’s lots of fun, but we want to get more turkeys.”

How long before some townie busy-body hippy has a big sook about “teaching kids to kill”. No doubt they will be filmed making some stupid claim about why the kids don;t just get their meat from the supermarket

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
