Firefighters rescue pet steer stranded in North Canterbury river

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from Northern Outlook

A beloved pet steer is recovering happily in his North Canterbury paddock after having to be rescued from a river.

Firefighters, neighbours and a local vet joined forces to help Sarah Allan rescue her 1200-kilogram, 6-year-old pet steer, Mitchell, from the Cam River last week.

Seeking Nathan

Jeneane from Rangiora

A letter for 'Nathan' arrived this morning.

It's in a beautiful black envelope with my address 55 Lower Sefton Rd, and our RD7 number in silver handwriting, but there's no surname or return address for me to follow up with. I suspect it may be meant for either 55 Upper Sefton Rd, Ashley, or any of the 55s in the 100s along Lower Sefton Rd.

I'll wait to hear from anyone in the know till after the weekend - then I will have to open it!

By the way I can offer workshops in letter writing skills and am happy to craft a session for interested groups. Of course one of those skills is putting a return address on the back (-:

They say a dog is man's best friend and that certainly seems to be the case in New Zealand.

Dog ownership has soared over the past five years, outstripping the growth in people in all the main cities apart from Auckland.

The country is home to more than 560,500 registered dogs – enough for about one in nine to be a proud owner. That's a pooch for roughly every third household.

Robert runs a non-profit called Whangarei Native Bird Recovery where he treats and rescues native birds until they are able and healthy enough to go back into the wild.

This little guy was rescued from a popular and busy park earlier today. He would've fallen from his nest and as they cannot fly at this age was unable to get back to his nest! This makes morepork very vulnerable to predators.

Robert will keep 'Biggles' (dubbed by Lyn) until he's grown all his feathers and able to fly. Also, we HAD to get a photo op with our own Spark Morepork pamphlets :)
