Volunteers have spent days cleaning up dead animals in Hawkes Bay. Kate Gower-James says they have been picking up dead livestock that had been grazing on the flats and were washed into residential and orchard blocks. She says the priority for home owners is to clean up their houses and the last thing they want to do is to pack up livestock. A group of around 20 volunteers have been cleaning up for three days….dragging the carcasses out of the mud, and loading them on to a trailer. Council contractors come first thing next morning and take them away. The volunteers say in the past three days, they have collected six truckloads of deceased animals.
