Cat poisoned after eating brodifacoum/cyanide

Video of James B H Upm's whose cat was poisoned after Horizons Regional Council put poison down in a 2ha area of bush just neighbouring them. He received an apology from the contractor at Horizons and offer to pay the cats vet bill.
The cat was being treated with Vit K and antibiotics.
The crazy thing was there were very few possums in this small area.

Animal Pest Control - Horizons need to consult with neighbours before dropping poison next to them. This is an easily trapped area of bush.  So much environmental damage for maybe a few possums?
