Animal rescuers on stand-by

An animal search and rescue team says there have been no reports of significant animal injuries as a result of Tuesday's 6.3 earthquake which tore through central Christchurch.

A specialist 12-member team from Massey University has been on stand-by in Palmerston North for the past four days to provide emergency in-field veterinary treatment and disaster assessment in Christchurch if needed.
The team includes an equine surgeon, physiologist, animal behaviour specialist and veterinary technologist.
However, they have not yet been required following the Christchurch earthquake, a Massey University spokesman said.
