  1. I think this animal control officer did the right thing by resigning. If the owners of this dog were who I think they probably were, then this officer would have been in for a good hiding if he didn’t resign. He will still have to watch his back or move out of the area. The motto of this story is you can never do do enough checking.

      • dont think his captive bolt will be as fancy as that one tho sagz, his reload time may let him down if he stumbles onto a gang funeral with double lanes of barking thugs doing burnouts etc.

        true story, my mates co worker thought he would play with the captive bolt gun they use to put down calves etc. sitting in the ute he put the shell in and sat with it between his legs and didnt realise how far out the bolt actually went… BANG, followed by screaming, the muppet missed his dickn balls by an inch or 2 and it penetrated deeply into his inner thy.
        that was several years ago, surely darwin has taken out someone like that by now?

      • What is with this killing by bolt? I have never heard of that and FFS I am absolutely shocked that anyone would kill a dog like that. WTF was wrong with the dog catcher or what ever he is? I would hope he has left town and the rest of the dog control officers have as well. I would be devastated if it were one of my dogs.
        Another glorious day in the Tron////////// NOT, Thought this elNino was supposed to be the one? Not only do we have to get up in the dark but we get wet walking the dogs as well. So much for spring?????
        Have a good day everyone, Hope you are not as sick of the electioneering and who is going to vote for whom I am so over it I could scream and scream till I am sick.
        Be careful out there……….

  2. Saggy ,by the sound of it the NZ police are losing their youngest and brightest to Australia, the reason in my opinion is that the younger officers joined up to “do good” and on seeing how incompetent and corruption ridden the older pig leadership are that they have two choices, leave the job or move to another country where the police still carry out the job they are meant to be doing rather than become the enforcement arm of an equally corrupt government as has happened in NZ..

  3. “Taxpayers have footed a legal aid bill of almost $900,000 for the defence of Mama Hooch rapist brothers Danny and Roberto Jaz – and with an appeal on the horizon, the total could be set to rise significantly.”

    This legal aid rort has to stop. That’s the equivalent of 4.5 lawyers being paid $200,000 pa, working on this case for a full year. It doesn’t add up. Lawyers are taking us for a ride.

  4. Two old ladies were chatting over the fence. Mrs Smith says, “you’ll never guess what happened last week… I was in the kitchen, making the Sunday dinner, and I sent Mr Smith to the allotment for a cabbage to go with the dinner. But when he was pulling it out of the ground, he keeled over and died of a heart attack!”

    Mrs Jones says, “Goodness me! That is absolutely awful. Poor Mr Smith. What did you do?”

    Mrs Smith says, “I opened a tin of peas”.

  5. There were three girls who were getting married and all met at the marriage counselor’s office to discuss the options of having or not having a baby right away. There were two city girls and one farm girl…
    The counselor asked them if they planned on having a baby right away or were going to wait awhile. They all agreed that they had discussed this with their potential husbands and all agreed to wait awhile…
    Well, the counselor asked the first girl what type of birth control she planned to use. Her answer was, “The rhythm method”…
    “That will work,” said the counselor, “if you keep a good record”…
    He asked the second girl what system she planned on using. “I plan on using birth control pills,” she said..
    Again he said, “Yes that will work as long as you don’t forget to take them.”
    He then asked the farm girl what system she was planning on using. Her answer was, “The bucket and saucer method.” After a short delay, he told her that should also work…
    He asked them all to come back in one year on a specific date for a follow up on how things were going…
    They all met again one year later and the two city girls were pregnant. Only the farm girl was slim and trim yet…
    Well, the counselor asked the first girl what method she used and what went wrong. She replied, “I used the rhythm method but somehow got my notes mixed up and, well here I am, going to have a baby”…
    He asked the second city girl what method she used and she replied, “The birth control pill. But we were camping one weekend and I didn’t have my pills with me and as you can see, I too am going to have a baby”…
    He turns to the farm girl. “I vaguely remember you were going to use the bucket and saucer method. Now I must admit that I don’t have a clue what the bucketl and saucer method is. Will you explain it to me as I see it has worked well for you”…?
    She replied, “Well we make love standing up, and since I am quite a bit taller than my husband, he stands on a bucket turned upside down. Now as we are making love, I watch his eyes, and when his eyes get as big as saucers, I kick the bucket out from under him”…

  7. A bakery owner hires a young female clerk who likes to wear very short skirts and thong panties.
    One day a young man enters the store, glances at the clerk, and at the loaves of bread behind the counter.
    Noticing her short skirt, and the location of the raisin bread, he has an idea.
    “I’d like some raisin bread please,” the man says.
    The clerk nods and climbs up a ladder to reach the raisin bread located on the very top shelf.
    The man standing almost directly beneath her is provided with an excellent view, just as he thought.
    When she descends the ladder, he decides that he had better get two loaves, as he is “having company for dinner.”
    As the clerk retrieves the second loaf of bread, one of the other male customers notices what’s going on and requests his own loaf of raisin bread.
    After many trips, she is tired, and irritated and begins to wonder, “Why the unusual interest in the raisin bread?”
    Atop the ladder one more time, she looks down and glares at the men standing below.
    Then, she notices an elderly man standing in the crowd. Thinking that she can save herself a trip, she yells at the elderly man,
    “Is it raisin for you too?”
    “No,” stammers the old man, “but it’s quivering a little.”

  8. Labour has no ability to self reflect before opening their gobs. Hypocrisy is not a word in Labours’ dictionary. To be fair, I think Nationals beanie policy could go much further. Generational feralism starts at the Winz office.

    The Herald:

    ”Labour’s Social Development spokesperson Carmel Sepuloni told Tim Dower on Newstalk ZB this morning that National chose to “bash beneficiaries” with its latest policy. “It’s same old, same old. I was pretty surprised to see them again choosing this opportunity to bash beneficiaries when there’s so much more at stake here,” Sepuloni said.” It’s something we’ve seen for decades from the National party but, right now, given some of the challenges we’re facing, I was quite frankly disgusted. Sepuloni said it’s time for Labour to “continue fighting for every vote” Sepuloni called a potential National-Act-NZ First coalition a “three-headed monster”.

    • Two things Ronnie.

      1. National are not in power yet so have not enacted any policy which can affect beneficiaries, so Sepuloni’s understanding of the situation is very poor or, her understanding of tenses in the English language is abysmal or both.

      2. A bit rich coming from Carmel Sepuloni who has a family history of substantial benefit fraud.

        • Yes WG, Labour have no plans to have an aspirational, achieving, New Zealand, likewise, the Greens and Maori Party. They all would rather have beneficiaries wallow in poverty and be reliant on the Government than strive for greatness. Sad really, but about 50% of New Zealanders, come 14th October will vote for that scenario.

            I’ve no doubt that if national forms a government we are going to hear the truthful bad news about the countrys actual economic situation which will be bleak,Labour are lying it’s just what they do.

            • Revvy its rinse and repeat. Labours out on its ear. That’s a given.
              Usually, National waltz’s back in and cleans up the financial mess left behind.
              However, this time around ACT is going to be in the loop. Nat/ACT.
              Financially they are the powerhouse that will bring NZ back into line.
              In the scheme of things, 8% -9%-10% mortgage interest rates are still low given historic rates of 20 plus% back in the day. Bird fails to mention that 12-15 months ago I was suggesting mortgage holders lock themselves into the best 5-year mort int rate they could find, which was 5.5% from memory. Those who acted on my advice would be smiling right now. The FOMO’s who bought houses, at the wrong time in the cycle, won’t so much. But it will right itself. Some will get burnt (fomo’s)and those who understand the market will do well.

            You know nothing of my circumstances and it’s irrelevant. My comments are on the market. Not a dick measuring contest with insecure try hards.

            The reason I am so accurate is simply because I don’t make it emotional or personal.

            You are a proven and discredited liar who is only supported by human filth who shoot the messenger when hearing facts. The lowest expressions of humanity.

    Bad weather continues to hamper efforts to contain and remove any fuel from an oil spill off the coast of Banks Peninsula near Christchurch.

    Austro Carina, a 25-metre vessel owned and operated by Lyttleton-based Pegasus Fishing Limited, ran aground off the south-eastern coast near Shell Bay on Sunday night.

    All four crew members were winched to safety by helicopter.

    The fishing vessel, which was aground at Red Bluff, had about 10,000 litres of diesel and 400 litres of hydraulic oil on board.

    • She’ll be right. Stormy weather and big waves will dissipate the diesel.
      In a previous life many years ago I used to refuel (bunker) fishing boats, container ships etc.
      When we spilled diesel into the harbour we would call up the tug. It would arrive and do a few spins, donuts, and big revs. Bingo job done. Wouldn’t get away with it nowadays.

    Police, ambulance staff assaulted after Hastings crash involving speed, alcohol and no seatbelts

    “The five occupants of the car were very lucky to have only suffered moderate to serious injuries,” he said in a statement.

    “At least one of the passengers was ejected from the car in the crash.”

    Initial investigations had established speed, alcohol and no seatbelts – “almost every factor known to contribute to fatal crashes” – were factors in the collision, acting Snr Sgt Pritchard said.

    “I’m also incredibly disappointed that those involved in the crash assaulted police and ambulance staff who responded to the crash and were trying to help them.

    • BN and you watch, the person (Te Pou Tupua)who is once known as the Wanganui River will soon see money in this and start charging those who draw water from the Wanganui River.

      Thing is the headwaters of the Wanganui River are also diverted into Lake Taupo and then onto the Waikato River, so there is every chance that the water from the Wanganui River will be charged for – twice. Once for the residents of Taumarunui and Wanganui and again through the Waikato River Authority.

    However, Aotearoa will also be on the Australian plate’s northward journey.

    In 75 million years time, New Zealand is expected to reach the equator – about the time Africa, Asia, Australia and Europe have become one big landmass.
    After that, Aotearoa will track southwards at a slower pace.

    By the time the supercontinent – nicknamed Pangea Proxima or Pangea Ultima – is complete, New Zealand will lie between 20 and 30 degrees latitude below the equator – the region of modern-day Queensland.

  15. A leson in advertising
    A fruit stallholder by the side of the road is selling rock melons with a large sign stating “rock melons for sale.

    $2 each or 4 for $10”.

    An educated man drives by, backs up the car, parks, walks over to the stall holder, and says

    “4 rock melons for $10!? That’s wrong. It’s 5 for $10.”

    He then thrusts a $10 bill into the stallholder’s hand, receives his 5 rock melons, gets in his car, and drives away.

    A friend of the stall holder who is walking by says:

    “My friend, the car driver is right. It is 5 for $10 not 4 for $10. Your sign in wrong.”

    The stall holder responds:

    Yes, you are right the sign is wrong. But when it had the right prices shown I used to NEVER sell more than one rock melon at a time.”

    “Now, this election, New Zealand could let Australia decide. So, if you’re an Aussie-Kiwi, get out there and vote. It’s easy, because you can do it all on the internet – we probably gave them that too.”

    Dozens of Auckland beaches closed after sewer pipe collapses
    https://www.1news.co.nz/2023/09/27/dozens-of-auckland-beaches-closed-after-sewer-pipe-collapses/

    A large sinkhole has developed in Auckland’s Parnell after a sewer pipe collapsed, causing wastewater overflow running into the city’s harbour and closing several beaches.

    The 13-metre sinkhole descends to a 2.1-metre wide brick sewer pipe, which has collapsed.

    Watercare was alerted to the hole on Monday afternoon and have been trying to stabilise the ground and prevent more material entering the pipe.

    However, chief “Unfortunately, the situation has worsened with the sewer becoming completely blocked this morning, which may be causing overflows elsewhere in the network.

    “We’re working hard to confirm any overflow locations and to minimise any environmental impact as much as possible.” officer Mark Bourne said the situation was only getting worse.

    Glad you asked- in nz women can make accusations which are accepted as fact. But a man needs to prove everything.

    Also a woman’s propensity for lying, multiple false allegations etc will be hidden. But not an accused man’s past.

    Maybe he’s guilty. I think he probably is. But where is the evidence rather than stories and claims to feelzzz certain things?

  20. A 1News Verian poll shows National has slipped further to 36 per cent – down 1 – and would need NZ First to form a government.

    NZ First was on 6 per cent, Labour was on 26 (down 1), the Greens were up one to 13, Act was steady on 12 per cent and Te Pāti Māori was on 2 per cent (down 1).

    Luxon told 1News that he did not want people to think the election was a foregone conclusion. He said it was clear the majority of the country wanted change, and they’d have to vote to achieve it. Hipkins told 1News he didn’t think Luxon had the political skills to get Act leader David Seymour and NZ First leader Winston Peters to agree on anything.

  22. On the “debate” when asked by Gower if they would compensate the vaccine injured that moron Luxon just came straight out and said NO. At least Hipkins had the sense to say there was an avenue for that via ACC (even if they are doing a lousey job of it).
    I can see National dropping in the polls with that comment and I think NZF will benefit. They have been making some good comments on the Climate Change scam.
    But Seymour has a good chance to redeem himself by saying ACT would support giving more help to the victims.

    What it does do for me is confirm, once and for all –Luxon is owned by big pharma and probably WEF.

    • ”What it does do for me is confirm, once and for all –Luxon is owned by big pharma and probably WEF.”

      That’s a big call, Ross. What’s your evidence?

      Also remember most NZers aren’t triggered by vaccine issues. It’s not their priority. They aren’t interested. So, if Luxon has lost votes, he has gained votes by stating vaccines don’t rate with him.

      • “Most people are not triggered by vaccine issues” Tell that to the to the thousands filling the movie theatres to see “River of Freedom”. Yes the doco is as much about mandates but the two issues are joined together.

        Also I think kiwis have more basic humanity than you seem to displaying with your comment, if you do not think they care about people whose lives have turned upside down by their injuries.

        • I’m sorry Ross, I’m just explaining a harsh truth to you. The Rivers of Freedom film has nothing to do with vaccines. It’s a film; it’s relevant; it’s a shared experience around Covid. You may remember another film that garnered full houses. It was called ”Once Were Warriors.” It was flavour of the month until it wasn’t. I saw Pakeha matrons crying as they watched that film. They are now probably voting National to get rid of the bloody Maoris.

          What could change things is a big expose’ by MSM. I have sent emails to all media outlets asking why this has not happened. No replies. And no, I doubt it has anything to do with global elites. Do you know the probable answer.? The media think you and people like you are crazy fuckwits. Sorry, that’s another harsh truth.

          • Looks like I hit a sore point. Of course the documentary has to with vaccines and mandates. Thst is hard truth you are ignoring. It goes further — it shows factually how the Government and Opposition parties, all 120 of them turned their nose up at the people they are meant to be representing. That is the hard truth they are ignoring and Winston Peters is making political out it.
            “Once Were Warriors” was a fictional film. We are are talking about a factual documentary wit “River of Freedom”

        There are a lot of people who were jabbed that are getting sick constantly.
        The cancers are more virulent and more frequent.

    • Had a customer today who has a vax-injured son. She was telling me about ACC and their refusal to accept that it is a vax injury so now lawyers are involved.
      DNZ said in answer to a question today that they will be looking hard at ACC and its governance and behaviour.

      No one else will.
