Greyhound Racing In Australia
There are extensive animal welfare problems inherent in the Australian greyhound racing industry. These problems include – but are not limited to – high injury and euthanasia rates , illegal live baiting and the administration of banned or unregistered substances. The RSPCA believes that there should be a national approach to ending greyhound racing across Australia.
Following the exposure of systemic and ongoing cruelty in the greyhound racing industry across Australia, the ACT Government has announced it will legislate to end to all greyhound racing in the territory by the end of June 2018.
This is a great step towards improving animal welfare. We want to make sure the ACT Government and Attorney-General Gordon Ramsay know their decision is supported by the majority of the community, and are acknowledged for standing up for animal welfare.
