Cruelty to Animals, Shechita (Jewish Animal Slaughter) and Hunting
And yes, hunting is also permitted and a big business in New Zealand. The same for Iceland, Norway and Sweden where shechita is also forbidden.
It's considered a sport in those countries.
Yes, that means that if you want to terrorize animals by stalking, shooting and wounding them with rifles, you may, even if you just want to stuff it and mount it on your wall. But if you just want to carefully and quickly slaughter an animal according to Jewish Law for eating you could be jailed.
Something stinks, like rotten meat...
