NSW bans Greyhound Racing

Vanessa Brown and Rebecca Sullivannews.com.au

ANIMAL rights groups have praised the NSW government’s decision to ban greyhound racing, but say they hope the government will stick with its pledge of rehoming the surplus of dogs across the state.

In a “shock” decision on Thursday, Premier Mike Baird announced the industry will be closed completely from July next year. It follows a Special Commission of Inquiry into greyhound racing, the findings of which were handed to the state government last week.

“RSPCA NSW is ecstatic that the NSW government has today announced that it will ban greyhound racing in NSW,” RSPCA NSW CEO Steve Coleman said.

“It is a decision that places the welfare of greyhounds and other innocent animals who have been subjected to cruelty by this industry as the paramount consideration over and above

financial interests.”

But while the RSPCA, PETA Australia and greyhound adoption agencies have thrown their support behind the move, there is concern over what will actually happen to the dogs and puppies in the industry.

In a statement, the government said the options for the dogs will include: humane euthanasia; remaining in their current home; rehomed through an adoption program; or transferred interstate or overseas to jurisdictions that have appropriate animal welfare standards.

    To show our kindness, we won't make you run anymore.  Instead, we're just going to kill you.

    If the politicians treat people this poorly when they're armed to the teeth,

    just imagine what they'll be willing to do once they've disarmed everyone.

    Lose lose for the greyhounds. Perhaps to keep  the owners happy they'll introduce "Greybot Racing with "Autobunnies" coming to an electronic circuit near you.

    The reason is the dogs are being mistreated and killed if they don't perform to expectations or pass their useby date.  Maybe they should look at those mistreating the dogs instead. A few hefty fines and jail terms might do wonders. Can't imagine the betting agencies would be thrilled either.
