Children as young as 5 are urged to kill possums as a fundraiser for Orini Combined School in Taupiri, New Zealand, scheduled for September 29, 2017. We do not care if you trap em or shoot em...join in the family fun, states the poster.

I sign a petition every year for this. This is horrendous and I can't imagine how people allow their children to do this.

Signed Ruth It's very wrong to teach young children to harm or kill They learn naturally from the world around them a they get older. The possum was our gift to the people of NZ and not once have they thanked us for that .The Kiwis can be very ungrateful at times.
