Sign the Petition to

Federal and Australian State Governments

We the undersigned request that all the Australian State Governments end the failed self-regulation of the greyhound racing industry in light of recent horrifying evidence of widespread cheating and 'live baiting' and the barbaric training practices in Australia's greyhound racing industry uncovered in investigations by Animals Australia and Animal Liberation Queensland.
Industry self-regulation is failing dismally. And while self-regulation continues, there can be little hope that the horror of live baiting will ever be eradicated from the industry.
Sincerely..

Signed,

Orange for Animal Cruelty Awareness

DON'T BET ON CRUELTY!

Greyhound Racing Kills! 

The horrifying truths of Greyhound Racing.

 4--5 dogs every week are killed on the track, or behind closed doors after the race, simply because they are no use to their owners anymore.

Around 8000 pups every year are deemed unlikely to win races and most of those are killed.

'Live baiting' is a widespread and routine practice for a significant number of greyhound trainers.

They use rabbit, piglet or possum for example who are tied to a mechanical lure and flung around a race track at a high speed, chased, and eventually mauled and killed by dogs. Dogs are provoked and encouraged to attack the animals. 

Sadly, although there are plenty of shelters dedicated to rehoming greyhounds, there are just too many discarded by the racing industry to find homes for them all and about 10,000 young and healthy and lovable dogs are killed every year.
