It's illegal now for grocery stores to offer them
People here didn't know how to use them properly and we've wound up with a lot of dead and strangled wildlife

They've been spraying the wilders with a poison known as 1080 in attempt to bring down the rodent population (Totes, ferrets, rabbits) as NZ puts ornithology concerns first and foremost, even ahead of human rights concerns.
People have been complaining that the 1080 is also murdering their cats and dogs but they were ignored.
As of just recently it's been discovered that 1080 has been murdering many different animals (not just rodents) in an excruciatingly painful manner.

Colgate products are still being added to the drinking water supplies as it's believed the chemicals are critical for shiny teeth and beneficial for crops as they may also contain electrolytes.

There are cities and or companies here in the US that are starting to get rid of plastic bags and plastic straws.

Shocking that a poison can kill more than just the intended targets!

I don't know what a hairy fart is, but something tells me I'm better off not knowing.

The movie version of Dark Tower sort of puts a bow on this whole universe Stephen King created. A zoo of scary creatures are out there.

Those army buba’s created a rift between dimensions and now these creatures can trickle through (The Mist).

They tried to implement a "Bag-tax" here in the states. One year later and it hasn't taken effect. I've been hoarding all my plastic bags in a bigger plastic bag, just in case one day i need to take the dog on a walk :p

The plastic bags are great for packing. Better than those Styrofoam peanuts.
I don't get the newspaper anymore - what I used to use.

If you give a gun to skilled hunter he will feed his family

If you give it to an ape, the ape will shoot you with it

It is never the device but rather the collective IQ of society you present the tool too.

And personally there is a lot more here they need to take away from Kiwis..like cars for starters

The government here doesn't like progress for a very good reason.
