An Ingahape farming couple have lost an appeal to have their two farm dogs declassified as menacing.

Bryan Yaxley and Gloria Forman objected to the classification before South Taranaki District Council's environment and hearings committee last week.

The animals allegedly attacked the pet bulldog of their neighbour on June 7. It later died.

The lower drink-driving limits from December are:

Great - too much carnage on our roads.

Overkill - targets moderate drinkers, not the heavies

Still too little - make it zero tolerance.

Sensible - punishment is in line with lesser breaches of limit.
