Seems New Zealand's biosecurity regulations are not so secure. As reported in this article from Scoop, a Forest and Bird Conservation Manager successfully registered his pet cat via the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry's online biosecurity accreditation project. The owner was horrified at how easy it was to become accredited, as are others. But then again, his cat can now officially carry out biosecurity inspections of sea containers - not really that much different from the APHIS "Beagle Brigade." :-)
