If ANYONE has means to get this doco aired.... Please help!! It's a good cause and how can a doco hurt? If anyone is opposed to showing it, it shows they know the dangers of 1080 and just don't want it getting to the public. Get Chris home, he's an amazing man - thoughtful, loving, hard-working and - as no-one can argue - Passionate. And that's only what I've seen as a friend of Teryls - he has so much to offer as a Dad, Husband, Uncle, Brother and friend.
Fall of the Mighty Red Stag - By Chris Short
I am a stag majestic and free
and the winters cold has made me hungry.
now from the air has fallen a carrot of green
they smell so sweet for a death so mean.
For some of these i have taken
now my body's weak and muscles shaking.
with my antlers i thrash the bush in fear
for my life its taking, nerves on fire, belly aching.
Rising and falling all through the night
the pain is long till mornings light.
There i lay deep in the trees
as my heart and lungs finally freeze.
in the days hot sun as it comes through the leaves
soon the sent of death carries on the breeze
and the insects come with the rats to feed
followed by birds from the ground and some from the trees
and still the deaths rolls on from the poison in me...

Maori call themselves kaitiaki of the land but they not intersted in supporting this kaitiaki who is being snubbed by anyone who could make a difference and is proving the apathy of a nation.
