Ashhurst Domain: Local Environmental Mess

Attention Dog Walkers, if you exercise your dog in the Ashhurst Domain, Ashhurst, please be mindful of the river damage. Some of the walking tracks no longer exist, in the lower domain.

I have to say from the get go, I am not a Ashhurst resident, having said that I spend a great deal of time there – you could say “its” my second home.

Unfortunately, since September 2015 nature has had a hand in changing the landscape and not for the better.  Recent flooding over the past couple of years has seen the Manawatu River, decimate the river banks and take out big chunks of land, including some of the walking tracks.

Strong opinions and even stronger feelings are running rampant; and I am not here to argue for or against the decision to end Harambe’s life. The welfare of the little boy was defended only once his life was in peril; while the welfare of the gorilla was considered heavily up until that same point. What would happen if everyone’s safety had been better considered, from moment one? Would Harambe still be alive, and would a four year old boy’s family be happily non-traumatized…
