No stock answer to road safety problem

Waikouaiti Police have attended several incidents involving sheep
becoming loose and making their way onto State Highway 1, local
constable Jon-Paul Tremain reported. "Police make every effort to
return the stock, however if we believe the stock is or may be
endangering motorists, these animals will be destroyed and stock
owners will be prosecuted for their part," Jon warned. "If you see
anything suspicious or if you wish to speak to the Police regarding
any other matter you can contact us on 03 465 9127. In emergencies
dial 111."
