Gorse City's animal control department was a government department charged with animal control in Gorse City on the Inner Rim planet Gorse. The department was shut down by the Galactic Empire[1] sometime between 19 BBY and 11 BBY[2] to cut costs, with the Empire preferring to let a local blood cult with a penchant for animal sacrifice deal with stray animals for free.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

Gorse City's animal control department was mentioned in the 2014 novel A New Dawn, written by John Jackson Miller.[1]

Notes and references[]

  1. 1.0 1.1 1.2 1.3 1.4 A New Dawn
  2. 2.0 2.1 Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates the formation of the Galactic Empire to 19 BBY. Star Wars Rebels: The Visual Guide states that Kanan Jarrus and Hera Syndulla first met, as depicted in A New Dawn, six years before the beginning of Star Wars Rebels, which Galactic Atlas dates to 5 BBY, indicating that A New Dawn is set in 11 BBY. As the animal control department was shut down before the events of A New Dawn but after the formation of the Empire, it must have been shut down between 19 and 11 BBY.
