The secretary of State, asked about the possibility of returning to the old «kennel», he replied: «I Think the problem is that the kennel interpreted as a machine for the extermination of dogs was a mistake», but appreciated the kennel as «an instrument that put order in society when an animal didn’t have a fork responsible and staying in some place».
