Auckland Council funded $91,000 goat hunt that didn't kill any goats

Auckland Ratepayers' Alliance spokesperson Jo Holmes said it is "absurd expenditure", but the council has defended itself.

In the Hunua Ranges in the 2016/17 year, the council spent $91,742 on goat hunting, according to figures obtained by Stuff through the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act.

A council spokesperson told Stuff that feral goats had been eliminated in the area in the previous five years but "can re-establish a large population from a few remnant individuals".

"This is why it is important to continue intensive surveillance for a couple of years to eliminate any remaining animals that could lead to a resurgence of the population," the spokesperson said.

Ms Holmes disagrees.

"The council is literally paying professional hunters to take bush walks. We hope the exercise was worth it," she said.

"Over the last five years the average per-kill cost was $1600. This is ridiculous considering amateur hunters would happily do the job free of charge, if the council would let them."

Happy goat.
You can lead them to knowledge, but you can't make them think.

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.
