Media update: Otahuhu dog

Council is investigating the dog attack on four-year old
Shepherd Mea on Saturday. The dog, a bull mastiff cross, had
been staying with the family for only a short time.
dog is registered to another person and that owner is
required to formally surrender the dog in order for it to be
euthanized. If the owner does not do so, we can seek a court
order requiring the dog to be surrendered.
The dog is
currently being held at our animal shelter.

Gordon Campbell: On Government Arrogance
Right now, National is ramming anti-terrorism measures through Parliament. This legislation will grant the SIS the power to carry out 48 hour bouts of surveillance on anyone without a warrant, and will bestow on government the power to unilaterally revoke anyone’s passports and thus deny them the freedom to travel.
Ludicrously, the public has been given exactly one day to make submissions on these major infringements of their civil liberties.

Why the insane rush? Good question. More>>
