DOC (the New Zealand Department of Conservation) is going to make guided helicopter hunting (shooting animals out of a chopper) a legal activity on public lands come September. The writing is on the wall, 3 operators have already been granted an interim*decision to carry out this activity until heli-hunting permits become available in September.
The petition below may achieve nothing, but at least in 5 years time when our public land tahr and chamois herds have no trophy animals left*and our pristine and peaceful back country is*jammed full of helicopters*you will be able to say I tried to stop this!
Please take 1 minute of your time click on the link below and sign this petition, it is simple and easy.
