A kat who is afraid of the dawgs 1

The NSW Government will ban in July 2017 greyhound racing, after a damning report from a special commission, which questioned the “social licence” of the greyhound racing industry. There are great many people smiling and of course the ‘hounds, well I guess they are just barking happier. There are some unhappy individuals and groups and individuals paid by those groups who are not so happy.

Scared cat

Only it will relate only to the fine state of New South Wales, not the 51st State of America also known as Australia or the Queen’s backyard.
