Great Okura Knock Down of 2015

D-Day for the rats in Okura…”Bring out your dead”!!
A fun day was had by all bringing their rats to the village hall for the weigh in!

Largest Rat?

Largest Rat?

Prizes were for:
Largest Rat, Heaviest Rat, Best Kill, Longest Tail and Most Rats.

There is a real science behind eradicating or reducing a rat population and with the help of the Auckland University Statistics Dept. and their GIS system this could be a NZ first for a
community eradication of a major pest.
