A greyhound’s speed should not determine whether it lives or dies. But prior to 2016, at least 5,500 healthy greyhounds were being killed every single year in NSW, simply because they couldn’t earn their keep in the racing industry. And despite the 2017 industry reforms, we don’t know if this is still happening today.
It’s been five years and yet too many greyhounds are still slipping through the cracks of the racing industry, at risk of being killed because of a loophole in the law.
That’s why I’ve introduced the Whole-of-Life Tracking Bill, which will ensure that greyhounds are tracked by GWIC (the independent regulator) for their entire lives and finally close the loophole that allows greyhounds to be written off the industry’s books and potentially killed.
