Zagreb’s Gric Cannon not firing until further notice


The Gric Cannon, a symbol of Zagreb which marks noon with a shot every day, will not be firing until further notice, the City Housing and Municipal Services Company (GSKG) said on Thursday. “Since firing of the Gric Cannon and the resulting vibrations upset the citizens of the Upper Town following the recent earthquake, the firing of the Gric Cannon is suspended from March 28 until the situation calms down,” the GSKG said.
 The decision on suspending the firing, they added, had been made in consultation with the Zagreb crisis management office and the civil protection authority.
 The Gric Cannon is one of Zagreb’s sights. The tradition of marking noon began on January 1, 1877, and previously the firing had only been suspended after World War I, from 1918 to 1926.
 The cannon was originally situated in the building housing the Croatian Meteorological and Hydrological Service, and today it is located in the Lotrscak Tower in the Upper Town.

The new law will come into force on 1 May.
 Thirty million dogs a year are killed across Asia for meat, says Humane Society International (HSI). However, the practice of eating dog meat in China is not that common - the majority of Chinese people have never done so and say they don't want to.
