Reports of cruelty in the greyhound racing industry have not stopped despite government promises to clean up the industry after it back-flipped on its plan to ban racing.

New kennel standards would not be compulsory for another 10 years. If the draft code goes ahead, it will sanction suffering and I’ve asked for better standards: HERE.
