If photographs of dead rats are what you are looking for you have come to the right place!
A couple of weekends ago Eleanor Whyle was walking along Maori Garden Bay and found this dead rat in the tidal zone. Where did it come from, how long had it been dead? These are questions we will never know the answer to in this case. However in future, should we find a dead rat, Auckland Council have a database and a DNA check should be able to tell us the population that it originated from.
It is a timely reminder that we must always be on guard for any rodents that might make their way to Rakino.
