Stoat sleuthing reveals nothing suspicious
After two weeks of intensive searching, the hunt to confirm the sighting of two rogue stoats on Aotea/Great Barrier Island is to be scaled back.
Two biosecurity dogs were dispatched to the island early in the search and have been on the hunt since without confirming a presence.
“While this is good news and a relief, it’s a stark reminder to locals and visitors to the island, the importance of checking gear and goods on their boats and in their cars for stowaways. Stoats are a serious threat and any incursion, while always a possibility, would be devastating to the island’s native bird life. Vigilance is key to keeping our islands pest free,” say Jonathan Miles, Auckland Councils Incident Controller.
