Rabbit Haemorrhagic Virus

Gary Stephenson made this Official Information request to Ministry for Primary Industries

The request was partially successful.

From: Gary Stephenson

Dear Ministry for Primary Industries,

What law allows an unwanted organism to be released into the environment and why is it allowed.

Why is it not illegal for a private individual to be in possession of such an unwanted organism.

Why are councils allowed to release into the environment an unwanted organism.

Yours faithfully,

Gary Paul Stephenson
