From: Claire Ogilwy
Dear Massey University Wildbase Pathology
I’m doing some research with regards to how Kiwis are accessing poisons from bait stations and request the following Official Information.
Can you please supply a copy of any document created, submitted, received or sent in relation to the Hawke’s Bay Kiwi found dead on the road that tested positive for Pindone poison residues. Sample date is 19 October 2015.
Can you please confirm why Muscle was submitted as the sample type in order to test for both Pindone and Diphacinone poisons, and explain why Liver or Fat samples were not tested.
Can you also provide copies of Massey University Pathology Reports 37659, 37660, 37661 & 45768 and any document created, submitted, received or sent in relation to the Kiwis that tested positive for cyanide residues.
Kia ora Claire
