    Not suprising. People behave like maniacs. I dont when this bloody Govt will get their act together and stop this blatant lighting of crackers. Every bloody day crackers are lit - match, every festival, if someone shits, this is ridiculous. They are deafening and poor animals are scared out of their wits. Its ridiculous. There is total disregard. There must be a set time and only a certain type. Its neither good for animals nor elders or children as it can affect hearing.
