Rangers ready to shoot kiwi-killing dogs

Armed rangers are ready to shoot two marauding dogs who they say are a threat to hundreds of Northland brown kiwi.
The dogs were spotted wandering on the Rarewarewa Reserve, northwest of Whangarei, by visitor who alerted the Department of Conservation (DOC).
The reserve is home to the greatest density of kiwi, for the size of the site nationally, but a search was unable to find the dogs.
