Poll: Have you witnessed violence/antisocial behaviour on public transport?

Ripu Bhatia Reporter from Auckland Stuff

Hi neighbours,

A new text service will make it easier to report incidents of violence and antisocial behaviour on buses and trains.

Mayor Phil Goff said a number of recent incidents have prompted Auckland Transport to launch the service in collaboration with Crime Stoppers NZ.

Passengers who witness an incident of anti-social behaviour, tagging, crime or fare evasion can text details of the incident to 4030.

AT will then look into the issue and may deploy staff to investigate further.

Have you witnessed violence/antisocial behaviour on public transport?

If so, please share your experience!

DOG OWNER PURPOSELY ALLOWING HIS DOG TO ATTACK THE WILDLIFE.

Marie from Howick

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 and 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, until he seen me.
To be honest I was so shocked that someone would purposely allow this anyway, 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?.

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 thats what concerns me.
