Freedom from hunger and thirst

Local photographer Melanie Cooper has sparked concern and outrage after this weekend posting pictures of a bull tangled with a tree stump, which she said was left without food and water for three days.

The difference could barely be more stark: from the tropical atolls of the Cook Islands, to the Great Lakes on the border of Canada and the US, that ice over in winter.

The two-masted Marconi rigged schooner Argo has stopped by in Rarotonga with 17 students from the US and a crew of seven.

Because Rarotonga is reliant on visiting volunteer vets, sometimes there is nobody on the island qualified to help sick and injured animal. That’s why Te Are Manu is appealing for public help.

Deaths and injuries: ‘It’s not a matter of if, but when.’

Infrastructure agency provided staff with extra safety equipment and danger money, but not specialist supervision.
