Spirit 1260 Karratha has managed to dupe the public into thinking construction of a cattle yard was being considered in the Karratha CBD.

The April Fools Day joke was posted on social media and discussed by breakfast host Pablo Newton-Farley and newsreader Nick Wharton.

Mr Newton-Farley said social media was quick to realise the joke, but many listeners called in with complaints and concerns about the plan until all was revealed after 9am.

ThePilbara News imagines building a cattle yard next to the Arts and Community Precinct is not an idea which would fly with the City, as smelly cows, triple road trains and art do not go together very well.
