"It's very upsetting. I'm not a happy chappie. I'm pissed off and so is everyone else. At the end of the day, the decision has a political smell about it."

Our wonderful friend, Moko, who was featured in your videos, used to play with the locals in the shallow waters of the bay.
Moko was found washed ashore, dead, a couple of weeks ago - she was a legend along the bays up there.
Moko was a male bottlenose dolphin who associated with humans on the east coast of the North Island of New Zealand from 2007 to 2010.
Moko short for “Mokotahi” a headland on the Mahia Peninsula, was three-years-old as of July 2009, he resided at Mahia Beach for two and a half years from 2007 to September 2009, and became a major attraction there. He received worldwide fame when he rescued two pygmy sperm whales in March 2008. A year later, he trapped a woman out at sea. At the beginning of September 2009 Moko moved 80 km up the coast to Waikanae Beach, Gisborne, and in January 2010 he moved to Whakatane in the Bay of Plenty for five months before following a fishing boat to Tauranga on June 3. . Scientists were worried about Moko's welfare after a study found he had been scarred by boats and a fish hook. He was found dead on the beach at Matakana Island near Tauranga on the 8th of July 2010.
