Sambar deer Unruly minority wins

August 2007
New Zealand Tree Grower;Aug2007, Vol. 28 Issue 3, p33
The article reports that New Zealand conservation minister Chris Carter has relaxed controls on the hunting of Sambar deer in the southern North Island. Previously land owners had been prevented from controlling the deer within a gazetted zone which included much of the region, west coast from Waverley to Otak. Adult animals have been causing severe damage to trees by bark stripping and the destruction of newly planted woodlots, shelterbelts and forests. Denis Hocking, spokesperson for the New Zealand Farm Forestry Association, revealed that losses in affected pine forests have been calculated at $51/00 to $7000 per hectare, or 20% to 30% of the value of the trees at harvest.
