fireworks
For pets'' sake do you guys stop busting firecrackers? Right now I can hear the loud bangs. Busting loud firecrackers is animal abuse. How many birds even get scared out of their nests in the middle of the night?? How many cats and dogs get missing after running away, some never to be seen again??
Please spare a thought for these poor, voiceless animals. This is my message to all you firecracker busters.
Voting Booth
The ANC's leadership race is heating up. Who do you think will be elected party president at Nasrec in December?
