Sign the Petition to

Mr Bill Byrne, Greyhound Racing Minister

Dear Mr Byrne,

We believe that live baiting is a very important issue. We also believe that you as the racing minister are in a position to take action to address this issue. By action I mean putting regulators and inspectors in all areas of racing to ensure there is no animal cruelty or live baiting in any of the professional racing areas in Queensland and New South Wales.

This action is needed because animals are being used for human enjoyment and there are alternate solutions to this that are not being upheld. Using live baiting is animal cruelty, drawing blood from these animals and luring them while in obvious pain for the purpose of a race.

This action will help not only the greyhound racing industry but also help the cause of stopping animal cruelty. If this industry stands up and puts a stop to live baiting it will get a message across that it is not okay to use animals for human’s selfish purposes.

Your organisation will be judged on its ability to inforce and put a stop to live baiting. The eyes of the world are watching! Obviously it is time that action is taken to stop animal cruelty. We ask that you consider this letter seriously, and implement change in your industry. This will impact the racing industry and how the public views the way you treat animals and the level of professionalism. We also request that you get other members of your organisation to support and enforce the cause, so that we can have strength in numbers. In addition, by making a move and supporting this issue you would show the world that animal cruelty is not acceptable and cannot happen in a professional racing industry. You need to take the next step and realise that this is 2015 and animal cruelty has to stop.

Sincerely,

Liz Dick

This petition will

help address the issue because it will alert people that animal cruelty is happening in a seemingly professional environment. I want to make a strong point that live baiting needs to stop in the greyhound racing industry. By directing this at Mr Byrnes I am publicly calling him out to make a difference and hopefully he will feel obliged to make a change.
