Sheep rustlers hit city park

Sheep rustlers hit city park


Police and Cornwall Park management are concerned about a series of reported incidents over the past few weeks during which sheep rustlers have used dogs and traps to round up and capture sheep after dark.

Most recently, on the evening of Wednesday August 27, members of the public disturbed three men and three large dogs capturing new born lambs.

Cornwall Park staff are obviously concerned for the welfare of the farm's stock, particularly in the current lambing season and are working long hours to ensure the flock's safety.

Police and park staff urge nearby residents and visitors to the park to be extra vigilant and call Police on 111 and/or the farm manager on 021-686-778 immediately if any suspicious behaviour is noticed.

Police would also like to hear from anyone who has witnessed these types of incidents recently or who can identify the people and dogs involved.

Information can go to Constable Todd Martin on 09-302-6400 or via email - todd.martin@police.govt.nz (link sends e-mail)

Anonymous information can be provided to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Gordon Campbell: On The Mana-Maori Party Deal

If the self-interest involved wasn’t so blatant, the electorate deal between the Maori Party and Hone Harawira would be kind of poignant. It’s a bit like seeing the remaining members of Guns’n’Roses or the Eagles back on the road touring the nostalgia circuit… playing all the old hits of Maori unity and kaupapa Maori politics.

Can the two surviving Maori Party MPs (one electorate, one list) credibly work together with the old firebrand who split up the group years ago, and still hope to rekindle some of that same old magic? More>>
