>Gutted – #1355


 I don’t believe that this chappy died of choking, despite an emergency tracheotomy….

Nelson’s agricultural.

Gumboots are standard footwear, Toyota HiLux is common transportation and blokes are rugged and taciturn.

So when the Appleby Highway as it passes the Travellers Rest pub is lined with pick-ups, utes, 4WDs and similar on Queen’s Birthday weekend Monday, you know that it’s unlikely that the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra is giving a Mozart concert.

From the carnage on display after a day’s shooting, it’s probably wise to have stayed at home on the day.

Wild pig, deer, rabbits, hares, pukeko, small children.

Pretty much anything that moved.

Wearing a fur coat and going for a walk in the bush would not have been a good strategy….

Reporter for the Waimea Weekly appropriately dressed for the occasion, the occasion being the aforementioned Mozart concert. 
Ballerinas, mud and blood are imiscible.

Shoot some pigs, gut them, string them up, drink some piss Tui. Good way to spend a day, eh.

  1. >They try not to shoot the kids. They are the huntsmen of tomorrow. Nice catch jb.The look on the little kiddies' faces in your first photo lets me think there will be a few nightmares in the nights to come.

  2. >Well, I eat meat so I can't very well exclaim indignation. I'm also an animal lover so those photos do make me sad – although I'm sure they're less offensive than a slaughterhouse would be… Don't go getting any ideas.

  3. >Are there any vegetarians in NZ? Some of the photos record some pretty gross subjects, and, I think, that this opinion is shared perhaps by both children in the top photo. Those boars look pretty massive. Ever run into one in the bush??

  4. >You're kidding me. You're down in Greene County AL for sure! That little girl has been traumatized I think! And ask where that reporter got those cute ballerinas! :)V
