A daring 8-hour rescue operation has rescued a dog trapped on a Te Araroa cliff

Cock-a-doodle don’t — please

LETTER

Is anyone else tired of being woken up at 5am by a Gisborne-dwelling rooster?

I’m on Anzac Street and have the pleasure of waking up to this feathered alarm clock every non-rainy day. From the sound of it, it is somewhere closer to the centre of the city so I am imagining I’m not the only one with ruffled feathers every morning. I wouldn’t mind if it was 7am, but 5am is a bit ridiculous.

Set the poor bugger free (somewhere around Wairoa would be ideal).

The last rooster that was (loose) in Wairoa about 20 years ago disappeared after several weeks. Methinks your local one will probably toddle off this mortal coil quite soon! (But not "gone by lunchtime".)
Meanwhile, you'll have to "suck it up" as they say in modern idiom.

I am sure the climate emergency protagonists will blame global warming.
