Have there been any studies into the deaths of animals other than possums?

 

The Department of Conservation's Vertebrate Pesticide Toxicology Manual references a number of studies and states:

One study in the northern part of Pureora Conservation Park in 1988 found that 43% of the red deer population were killed. Simultaneous carcass searches over the poisoned area confirmed the pellet-count result.

The other study in the Hauhungaroa Range in 1994 gave deer kills in three areas of 30–40% of the population (Fraser et al. 1995). However, in a recent report 1080 carrot baits are reported to have reduced deer populations by >90% (Fraser & Sweetapple 2000). Pig mortality might also be expected but has not been reported.

Dogs are extremely susceptible to 1080 and must be kept away from toxic baits and possum carcasses which can remain toxic for many months (Meenken & Booth 1997). Predators, such as stoats, ferrets, and cats, are also susceptible to secondary poisoning (Heyward & Norbury 1999; Murphy et al. 1999). 

Livestock must also be kept well away from baits, and even partially degraded baits should be regarded as hazardous to sheep and cattle. Although possum kills are routinely monitored, particularly for large-scale aerial 1080 operations, there have been few scientific studies of any associated deer mortality. (from page 28)

Re: Have there been any studies into the deaths of deer and pigs?

Please, 1080 is a toxic substance.

I am disappointed that no regard appears to have been made as to to the heinous deaths of animals; deer implode and they die the most agonising deaths with blood seeping out of every orifice. This is abject cruelty.

Surely we as tangata whenua honour the natural world.

Our whenua is so poisoned, when will we say, enough!

Return the people to the bush and let them hunt these animals in a more humane way.

Where is the TB threat?  The information given is sketchy and woolly.
