Stop animals wandering or face consequences: police

Wandering animals can cause a lot of grief for property owners especially if gardens and crops get eaten or destroyed.


Livestock owners can be held accountable and prosecuted in such cases where animals are not properly managed.

In Ngatangiia this week, one person complained to the police on two occasions of cows destroying hedging.

And in Matavera, a grower had to chase off dogs getting into his produce. He shot two and was prevented from shooting a third when police were notified.

A reader commented on Facebook: “Xmas is just around the corner so two cows can make a huge umu for families n friends.

“Notify the owner first if he/she doesn't … then umu it is.”

Police want to remind motorists to be prepared before going in to police headquarters to renew their licences.

“Just a reminder to all drivers who are renewing licenses: please present your passport or birth certificate when doing so, at the Headquarters Licensing Office.

“Should your passport still carry your maiden name, your marriage certificate must be provided to verify the change.”

The Licensing Office will be closed today for Gospel Day.

“Thanks for your co-operation,” police said.
