About 100 birds were shot at the property by several hunters over the weekend. Trent shot 16.

PHOTO: FISH AND GAME ​ High country station fence decision held off • By Georgia O’Connor-Harding A DECISION over a ratepayerfunded fence in a high country station has been held off by the Selwyn Waihora Zone Committee after concerns more research needs to be done on the project. About five zone committee members will travel to Cave Stream later this month to visit the site. It was planned the committee would make a final decision on supporting the funding for a proposed fence by Flock Hill Holdings Ltd last Tuesday. Environment Canterbury proposed putting $44,236 towards fencing off a section of Cave Stream and associated 35ha wetlands at the station. It comes after an application by Flock Hill’s leaseholder Flock Hill Holdings, owned by Jim Foster and Vince Saunders of Los Angeles-based Coast Range New Zealand. •Turn to page 3 Look who moved into our new retail precinct.
