Gambling on Greyhounds

After horrendous exposés revealed shocking brutality in greyhound racing and the government agreed with the Special Commission of Inquiry’s conclusion that the industry could never operate without extensive cruelty, the government not only overturned its promised ban, it has increased subsidises to the industry. I’m appalled at the latest $500,000 for a new race at Wentworth Park and $200,000 to rebuild a racecourse. This follows this year’s budget which allocates funds from a new online gambling tax to the racing industry.  Meanwhile, cruelty charges, dog deaths and injuries and discoveries of mass graves continue.
