Easy answer

It takes a bit to make your canine crusader raise his eyebrows at the hypocrisy of these do-gooder outfits with barrows to push.

However, the latest noises from the whiners at Bitch & Complain (Fish & Game) made him laugh. The lobby group’s latest target of carping (bad pun intended) was not the farming sector as usual, but tourism.
