Colin Cox was involved in the very beginnings of deer farming in New Zealand and with the development of possum fibre for use in clothing. He's written a memoir which Country Life has turned into a series. Today he, his father and brother are struggling with a boar that's killing lambs and Colin's possum trapping escapades see him get cyanide poisoning.
