Safety warning for trampers

The team from Neighbourly.co.nz

Ahead of peak-tramping season, Police are urging hikers to not underestimate the "hostile" forest and mountains of Waikato.

This comes after a Waikato man, understood to be scouring the Pirongia Forest for a "rock structure", lost his life.

People are urged to plan their hikes carefully, carry equipment that would help them survive the night, and to not underestimate the length of time it takes to get from one place to another.

The physical and psychological pain these horses suffer is immense, with the movement against horse racing growing as animal welfare advocates call for change. What do you think? Should horse racing be banned? Vote in the poll below.
