Helicopter poaching in ruahines

21 Dec 2016 8:24 AM | Anonymous

Some of you may have seen the facebook reports of a helicopter poaching in the Ruahines this month (December when the Ruahines is closed to WARO). It appears to have happened a number of times, the operator has been identified by DoC, even witnessed by their staff. The operator clearly knew they had no permission so we await with interest the outcome.

The helicopter seen 1st December was a blue R22. I am not certain if the helicopter seen by at least one DoC working party more recently was the same one.
