Poxy New Zealand: The Land of Mysterious Deaths

Dogs in Rigor Mortis and Dead Pilchards Washing Up on New Zealand Beaches

[In case you missed the above sign,] Welcome to New Zealand!

How may we kill you?

The mighty 1080? Meningitis? Plague?  Chemical poisoning? Dioxin? Pesticide poisoning? Sewage Death? Saxitoxin poisoning? Algal bloom poisoning?  Listeriosis? Salmonella? E.coli? Campylobacte? The old-fashioned violent murder? [Or would you prefer driving a defective rental car on our death roads?]

There’s always something deadly in our waters, waiting to get you!

Two dozen dogs are dead and many more  are sick with a mystery illness after visiting Auckland’s North Shore City beaches.

The beaches were the dogs caught the deadly illness include Narrowneck Beach,  Browns Bay and Waiheke Island.

And if that wasn’t bad enough to impress the visitors, dead pilchards have been washing up on Whangaparaoa Peninsula and Martins Bay.

“It is too soon to tell if there is any connection between the dead fish and the dog illness, but given that they occurred in different locations, they are being treated as unrelated at this time.”  Reports said.

The Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry’s biodiversity division was reported as saying that said it had received numerous reports in recent weeks about dogs suffering from repeated vomiting. “While most have recovered quickly, it said some had developed seizures and died.”

MAF says it hasn’t a clue “as to what had caused the illnesses or deaths.”

“There has been nothing so far to indicate the situation is due to any form of chemical or pesticide poisoning.”

Come die an unnecessary death in New Zealand. There’s no other place quite like this sh*tpit!
