There is rabbits, a lot of rabbits in Central Otago, but not just there either. Coastal Otago, Millers Flat and the Teviot Valley. Just the whole of Otago in general has rabbit numbers climbing and in some areas quite quickly.
I’ve been doing battle a lot with Otago Regional Council (ORC), trying to find out why they are not issuing compliance notices on any government departments including department of conservation, LINZ etc same goes for district councils.
Often these are the areas that create the broader rabbit problems in an area. To say progress is slow is a massive understatement, it seems councillors and all the other middle management just don’t understand, well quite frankly, much at all. In fact considering they are councillors and management it should be of grave concern to rate payers and central government (but realistically are they any better themselves?)
Does the next step include the EPA or court? Looking more and more like it sadly, I have better things to be doing than wet nursing a bunch of incompetent bureaucrats.
