1080 explained

From The Panel, 4:16 pm on 14 September 2018

Anti-1080 protestors punctuated their gathering at Parliament yesterday by offering up some dead native birds and mice. There's a claim the birds were "bludgeoned" to death - an illegal act - and a counter-claim they were roadkill. Conservation biologist James Russell of the University of Auckland says that you'd have to eat two tonnes of watercress that had been exposed to 1080 for it to cause any harm.
