Man admits trying to have sex with goat

Once Again New Zealand tops its own chart of depravity. A 68-year-old man [suspected to be a former employee of the Security “Intelligence” Service, SIS,] pleaded guilty in a New Zealand District Court to attempting to commit bestiality with a goat.

The Judge who is an animal lover remanded the convict on bail until March 12 for sentencing. Original Report

Irish Goat: ‘Shame on YOU New Zealand!’

To Jewish and Muslim readers who consume New Zealand meat products:

At what point the meat you eat ceases to be “Kosher” or “Halal”?

Emergency Warning to Tourists Visiting New Zealand, Health Bulletin # 4

Posted by feww on February 28, 2008

[New Zealand Poisoning Syndrome (NZPS), Health Bulletin # 4. Sewage contaminated beaches, Feb. 16, 2008]

NZ Sewage Contaminated Beach Is Finally Closed!

Owhiro Bay beach was finally closed by Wellington City Council. Visitors are warned to stay clear of the sewage polluted water. Sewage and other microbiological pollution levels are so high they would cause a serious health hazard.

The presence of enterococci in the water makes it extremely dangerous for swimming or recreational contact, as cuts and skin lesions could become infected.

Visitors are warned against consuming fish and other marine animals caught in New Zealand’s contaminated waters. Original report

Emergency Warning to Tourists Visiting New Zealand, Health Bulletin # 3

Posted by feww on February 28, 2008

[New Zealand Poisoning Syndrome (NZPS), Health Bulletin # 3. Toxic blue-green algae (cyanobacteria), Feb. 13, 2008]

If You Must Visit New Zealand, Ask Yourself This:
Do I Feel Lucky?

New Zealand health officials have closed another lake in Hawk’s Bay, Lake Tutira, north of Napier, due to cyanobacteria poisoning (toxic blue-green algae) warning swimmers against coming into contact with the water.

Nearly all of New Zealand rivers are infested by blue-green algae—some to a dangerous extent.

Below extracts from: Truth About ‘100% Pure New Zealand’ Advertising Campaign

Toxins from certain species of cyanobacteria “are poisonous to cattle, horses, sheep, pigs, chickens, ducks (domestic and wild), pigeons, geese, herons, songbirds, dogs, rabbits, small wild and domestic animals, and even frogs, fish and snakes. Cyanobacterial toxins are primarily neurotoxic (affect the nervous system) and hepatotoxic (affect the liver). Clinical signs in cyanobacterial poisoning include nervous derangement, staggering, tremors and severe abdominal pain.”

“Intoxication with cyanobacteria is characterized by convulsions, ataxia (in- coordination), bloody diarrhea and sudden death. Affected animals rarely range far from the water source.”

The toxins are also poisonous to humans and can cause liver damage, asthma attacks, gastroenteritis, skin rashes, eye irritations and allergic responses.

The toxins are absorbed from the water that contains high concentrations of cyanobacteria or cyanobacterial toxins via ingestion (drinking or swimming in contaminated water) or via inhalation (breathing air that contains airborne toxins.) [For references, click here.]

American tourist killed in New Zealand

Posted by feww on February 28, 2008

[Submitted by a guest writer]

Wrongful Death as the Result of Failure to Warn of Dangers!

Another avoidable Death!

This time an American tourist was killed in New Zealand. Alan Paul Leger, a 57-year-old from Boston, just a name to the readers, but a real person to his family, alive and well just a few days ago, is now dead. Was he murdered, or did he die because the authorities failed to warn him of the dangers? Either way, one or more people are directly responsible for his death and they should be brought to account.

To add insult to injury because the victim was an American, and the New Zealanders don’t like “septic tanks” (Yanks) in their neck of the woods, New Zealand police declared: “The American tourist who fell to his death in the Mt Cook National Park yesterday was inexperienced in the alpine environment.”

Mountain Safety Council chair Ross Meder added: “Tourists often fail to realise weather conditions can change extremely quickly in New Zealand, much more so than in the Northern Hemisphere.”

Well, thanks for letting the deceased know. He would be sure to be careful next time!

Who’s Afraid of Compound 1080?

Posted by feww on February 28, 2008

[New Zealand Poisoning Syndrome (NZPS), Health Bulletin # 2. Exposure to Compound 1080 Feb. 10, 2008]

Should You be afraid of 1080?

Sodium fluoroacetate (aka, sodium monofluoroacetate, compound 1080 or 1080)

1080 is a potent metabolic poison that works by interfering with the citric acid cycle, and is used primarily to control mammalian pests, including invasive species. The existence of this chemical was first noted in the Second World War.

Compound 1080 is the most toxic pesticide registered by the World Health Organization, WHO. It is rarely used in the U.S. because it is highly toxic and kills wildlife indiscriminately. The only manufacturer of 1080 left in the U.S. ships most of its production to New Zealand. More information on 1080 …

Emergency Warning to Tourists Visiting New Zealand

Posted by feww on February 28, 2008

[New Zealand Poisoning Syndrome (NZPS), Health Bulletin # 1. Exposure to Bromoethane Feb. 6, 2008]

Toxic Hazard Warning:
Bromomethane
Exposure in New Zealand !

Tourist cruise ships with up to 1200 passengers in New Zealand’s crowded tourist ports are berthed just meters from open air spots where logs are fumigated with methyl bromide. Report

Methyl bromide (bromomethane) is an odorless, colorless nonflammable gas used to fumigate crops, logs and goods. Bromomethane is on the list of banned ozone-depleting substances of the Montreal Protocol.

Bromomethane: Health Effects Report

The following summary of health effects of exposure to Bromomethane (methyl bromide) is based on various reports including a toxicological report issued by CDC’s Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Register, ATSDR:

What is Bromomethane?

Bromomethane is a manufactured chemical (nature also produce also bromomethane in minute quantities). Bromomethane is used to kill a variety of pests including rats, insects, and fungi. It is also used to make other chemicals or as a solvent to get oil out of nuts, seeds, and wool.

Bromomethane Affects Your Health

If you inhale bromomethane you may develop a headache, dizziness, nausea, vomiting and weakness; this may be followed by mental excitement, convulsions and even acute mania. More prolonged inhalation of lower concentrations may cause fluid build up in your lungs and it may be hard to breathe. It could cause bronchitis, pneumonia, muscle tremors, seizures, kidney damage, nerve damage, and even death.

Exposure levels leading to death vary from 1,600 to 60,000 parts of bromomethane in 1 million parts of air (1,600-60,000 ppm), depending on the length of the exposure.

The respiratory, kidney and neurologic effects are of the greatest concern to people.

[Note: Studies in animals suggest at high exposure levels bromomethane causes birth defects and interferes with reproduction.]

Is there a medical test to show whether I’ve been exposed to bromomethane?

Several tests are available to determine if you have been exposed to bromomethane by measuring the toxic residues in your blood or in the air you exhale. However the tests are useful only if they are carried out immediately after exposure is suspected because most bromomethane doesn’t stay in your body long.

Canadian Tourist Murdered?

Posted by feww on February 28, 2008

[Update, Monday February 4, 2008 ]

According to a report, Canadian tourist killed in mysterious circumstances [murdered?] on a cycling tour in New Zealand last week was a news magazine publisher and community leader in the mountain resort town of Whistler, Canada.

Kathryn Jane Barnett, 49, president, co-owner and publisher of Pique Newsmagazine, was fatally injured when a vehicle, traveling uphill, hit her from behind. Mrs Barnett was an experienced cyclist and was riding well to the left [legal side] of the road.

Initial Report

A Canadian tourist was killed in mysterious circumstances in New Zealand raising the number of incidents of murder, “accidental” death and violent rape in 2008 to over 100 on the day their imbecile police discovered the weighted-down body of another woman in a river.

Initial report at Stuff New Zealand

470,000 Watch Hillary’s Funeral!

Posted by feww on February 28, 2008

Architect of World’s Highest Garbage Dump Bites the Dust!

[Submitted by a guest writer.]

About 414,000 people (ten percent of New Zealand’s 2-legged population) watched four hours of live coverage of Edmund Hillary’s state (!) funeral on a NZ TV channel, while another 55,500 watched a two-and-a-half hour long coverage on another channel, according to a report. [Edmund Hillary was one of the first people to glorify the littering of Mount Everest, the first steps in destroying one of Earth’s remotest ecosystem, and be praised for it.]

everest_kalapatthar_crop.jpg

The procession also included two precious possessions, carried upon cushions by slow-stepping soldiers; a carved wooden walking stick and an ice-axe to sum up the adventurous spirit of Sir Ed, who died on January 11 of a heart attack, aged 88.

NOT a single viewer has yet volunteered to clean up the estimated 1,200 tons of garbage or remove the 150 or so dead bodies (at least 41 bodies lay on the north side of Everest alone!) that Hillary and his fellow conquistadors have since left behind.

About 921,780 liters of raw sewage were discharged into glaciers on Everest between 1921 and 1999, according to Junko Tabei, a female climber who reached the summit in 1975. Tabei conducted research on garbage left on the mountain for her master’s course thesis at Kyushu University in 1999.

Stop New Zealand Committing Eco-Terrorism!

Posted by feww on February 28, 2008

A Definition of Eco-terrorism:

“An act that terrorizes other species and threatens the ecological systems of the planet.” ~ Paul Watson

“After warfare, tourism [euphemistically eco-tourism,] is the most destructive human activity.” ~ EDRO

“Eco-tourism, like plague, destroys everything in its path.” ~ a concerned reader

Say ‘NO’ to Eco-Terrorism! Don’t Fly to New Zealand!

Cruel Wool from Barbaric New Zealand

Posted by feww on February 28, 2008

Will you feel warm this winter?

Mulesing . . . hillside butchery

“If you’ve never heard of the word ‘mulesing’ (pronounced mule-zing) you can be forgiven. Most New Zealanders are blissfully unaware [sic] of what can only be described as the most barbaric and vicious practice carried out in the New Zealand farm industry today.” Read more…

“Mulesing is the partial skinning alive of lambs, especially in Australia and New Zealand, where millions of lambs are treated this way. Stock hands cut away the skin and wool from the lambs’ backsides with shears. They may amputate the lambs’ tails at the same time and peal the skin from around the lambs’ tail stumps. Stock hands carry out the operation with no demand for competence and no anaesthetic for the sheep. Million of lambs are mulesed every year.” Read more…

New Zealand: The nadir of human aspirations

Posted by feww on February 28, 2008

The “rabbit hole of morality downunder from which Alice will never return!”

My colleague calls New Zealand “the nadir of human aspirations.” The “rabbit hole of morality downunder from which Alice will never return!” When I read the following I knew instantly what that meant.

“In New Zealand around 800,000 pigs are slaughtered each year. For many pigs, death is the only thing that brings relief from any further suffering. Most pigs are reared indoors under extremely intensive and cruel conditions. They are denied their natural behaviour, suffer illnesses and leg disorders …”

“Pigs raised for slaughter are often kept in dark, barren and overcrowded pens. … these young pigs turn to vices such as aggression and tail-biting other pigs which can lead to cannibalism. Instead of providing better conditions for the animals, farmers reduce tail biting by cutting off part of the piglet’s tail, without the use of anaesthetic.” Read More…

More Eco-Terrorism in Antarctica

Posted by feww on February 28, 2008

The critters who commit acts of eco-terrorism (the tourists and the tourism industry) need urgent rehabilitation. And if that fails, they should be put behind bars for the rest of their wretched lives to protect the environment.

“BUENOS AIRES, Nov 23 (IPS) – The second accident this year involving a cruiseliner in the Antarctic is alarming the countries that protect and conserve the frozen continent, which are persisting in their demands for penalties in cases of disasters that cause pollution.”

“Mariano Mémoli, the head of the National Antarctic Directorate at the Argentine Foreign Ministry, told IPS “we are extremely concerned by the frequency of these accidents, but the other countries, which are also alarmed, are taking their time about signing laws to defend the environment.”

“[T]he M/S Explorer, a tourist cruise ship, collided with an iceberg close to the South Shetland Islands, north of the Antarctic Peninsula, shortly after five a.m. on Friday. The 154 people on board, passengers and crew, were taken off in lifeboats and inflatable dinghies, and the damaged ship was left listing at an angle of 45º.”

“… The liner was carrying 185 tons of fuel, and the first assessments agreed that towing it would be risky and costly.” (!)

“Mémoli said that the diesel oil carried by the cruiser is a light fuel, most of which will evaporate, but the residue is highly toxic and soluble in water. “This is an area of high biological value, with penguins, seals, elephant seals, and a range of fish and bird species,” he said.”

“The ship, 73 metres in length and with a beam of 14 metres, flies the Liberian flag. It was built in Finland and is operated by GAP Adventures, a Canadian tourist company.”

“Most of the passengers, who paid an average 8,000 dollars for the cruise, were from the UK, the Netherlands, the U.S. and Australia.” Read more …
