Why: Having fun shouldn't involve cruelty

Each year in Australia, more and more people are deciding that entertainment that relies on others having a bad time are no fun.  We all enjoy getting dressed up and having a good time with friends, but watching animals suffering is no one's cup of tea.

More details out soon - SAVE THE DATE!
