Profit does not come before welfare

One of the key findings from the New South Wales Special Commission of Inquiry in the Greyhound Racing Industry was that “of the 97,783 greyhounds bred in the last 12 years, between 48,891 and 68,448 dogs were killed because they were deemed uncompetitive as racing dogs – this equates to a ‘wastage’ rate of 50 to 70 per cent.”

How have we allowed this industry which is built upon accepting animal deaths as a necessary by-product of greater profit, to continue to operate for so long? It was only after the report for the Special Commission of Inquiry into the Greyhound Racing Industry in NS W, that Premier Mike Baird called for a ban on the industry.

What about SA?

South Australian Greens MLC Tammy Franks has called for an inquiry into the greyhound racing industry in South Australia. So far, the true number of greyhounds raced, retired, re-homed and euthanised in SA are not disclosed because Greyhound Racing SA is refusing to release the statistics. An inquiry will ensure these figures are made public.

Now is the time to support an inquiry into the greyhound racing industry in SA.

The Greens have called on the South Australian Labor Government to support a Parliamentary Inquiry into the greyhound racing industry in South Australia.  Watch Tammy Franks MLC’s full speech in Parliament here. Show your support of the Parliamentary Inquiry by joining the campaign below.

 

The Greens motion will be called to a vote on Wednesday 21st of September. Register to watch the vote in the Legislative Council.
