A decapitated deer recently caught by a local hunter sparked a police callout to a Tauranga property this morning.

Police were dispatched to a Bellevue address after they received reports of the decapitated animal by a concerned member of the public shortly before 9.30am.

But upon arrival police discovered the headless deer was part of a local hunter's recent catch and deemed the situation was not suspicious, says a police spokesperson.

What are your thoughts on the council’s proposal to increase rates 40 per cent over the next three years?

Good, it will help pay to revitilise the city
Not good, rates are high enough now
I’m ok with an increase, but maybe not such a big one
