Rex and Betty's Petition. No animal should have to suffer like this.









Marilyn Nuske

Melbourne, VIC

27 Jan 2016 — I was recently contacted by Betty's family. Their much beloved pet had died while they were on holiday in Western Australia. Betty died after ingesting a 1080 laden bait. There was no warning. I am uploading a video of the event so that you might understand just why this Petition is so important to have any poisoning of animals stop but particularly 1080. It is a cruel way to die before time.

stop 1080 Court fund















A Judge in a previous unsuccessful 1080 case advised us that if poisoners were breaching conditions of their Resource Consents then they could be pursued under the penal provisions of the Resource Consent Act.

So... We formed a kind of "1080 Police" - following and monitoring 1080 operations. We took affidavits from 23 witnesses, with over 400 breaches of Consents by DoC, Animal Health Board, and West Coast Regional Council.

We began a Society, the case was first filed in May 2012 and is now in the High Court.


The Court has decreed that we we need to provide up front $25,000 as a "Security of Costs", to be retained if we win the case, forfeited to the opposition if we lose.

We have been battling unaided for 3 years now but now we need your help.

We are asking for donations of whatever you can afford to help keep the case alive.

However, any substantial donations ($500 or over) is refundable to you if and when we win the case by emailing your Give-a-little receipt to our secretary Kath Lane: wildsidebackpackers@gmail.com

If we get over $25,000 the excess will be used for incidental costs such as photocopying, court filing costs, and a donation for travel expenses to our excellent pro-Bono lawyer. Go to Givealittle to donate and see progress
