I was at a local walkway / pond in Botany this morning and I suddenly heard a loud commotion of birds I could tell something was wrong because of the they were going off so frantically.
I ran to see what was wrong, as I turned the corner I seen a man with his dog, his dog on leash, leash in his hand and he was allowing his dog to attack / torment these poor birds who were so desperately trying to protect their babies.
Until he seen me that is. I told him that he is not allowed to let his dog attack these birds, they have babies, you are a visitor here and that I would report him.

This is what really got me, when I said to him " you cant let your dog attack the birds" he replies with, WHERES THE SIGN?. Are you ...... kidding me.

So apparently we need a sign to tell us that its not appropriate to let your dog attack the wildlife.....this is common sense to most.
Its a worry if he encourages his dog to attack birds its obviously not just bad for the birds as these are bad behaviors to encourage in any dog, what else could his dog attack.
He is a regular visitor to the park and that is what concerns me.
If you live in the surrounding area or happen to be walking in the area please keep your ears open and your eyes out.
It is a privilege to have access to these walkways and we do not want idiots like this ruining it for the rest of us and our dogs.

Why it’s important to choose an executor for your will.

Public Trust

When it comes to choosing an executor for your will, it's vital that you choose someone who will protect your legacy. A person you trust to fulfil your final wishes set out in your will. Scott Errington, Principal Trustee at our Timaru Customer Centre had a chat with stuff.co.nz recently on the importance of an executor for your will.
