    Linking that to killing Kiwi! For goodness sake Josh.

    Uncontrolled Dogs
    Throughout Northland, the number one killer of adult kiwi is uncontrolled dogs. Dogs find the smell of kiwi irresistible, and as kiwi have a very weak chest structure, even a gentle squeeze by a dog can kill a kiwi. Adult kiwi should live to breed for 50 years or more; unfortunately, in Northland, dog kills bring the average breeding life of a kiwi down to only 14 years. This is a massive loss in breeding capacity.


    As i said, happy family. As i said many dog owners are responsible and informed now,it would be totally natural for any dog in survival mode to get something easy to eat and i dont blame the dog for that if it did BUT am pointing out the destruction caused by dogs on kiwis if let loose even when with the owner, ask any DOC member. Kiwis may well become extinct on the mainland from predators, dogs, cats, stoats and ferrets being the main offenders.

    I keep my dogs on a lead when I walk them to ensure they don't dart out and get run over. You've made your point.

    I found that story very touching, as an aside, there's a saying that goes 'Never trust a man that doesn't like dogs' I've found the saying to be very true, point made I reckon.
