Summary

On 9 May 2017 2 farm workers moving sheep on Old Dunstan Road in the Maniatoto saw a person driving past them in a utility with hunting dogs in a box on the back. They watched the vehicle leave the road and go onto Ida Valley Station. Mr Terry had previously been given a trespass notice not to go onto the Station. He was charged with trespass and unlawful hunting. It is presumed he went onto the Station to hunt if he was there in a vehicle with hunting dogs. He denied ever leaving the road. On appeal the High Court agreed with the District Court Judge that Mr Terry was not a credible witness.
