A native animal protection group in Northland is using shocking pictures of dead kiwi to highlight how many are killed by dogs.

On its Facebook page, Bay Bush Action shows around 60 dead kiwi the group has collected in the region over a year.

It claims almost all of them were killed by dogs.

Bay Bush Action says even the most harmless pet can be a kiwi killer and dogs must be kept on a leash in areas where kiwi are.
