Following last night’s investigation by the ABC’s 7:30 Report into the horse racing industry the Greyhound racing association has come out strongly and warned them to lift their game.
“It breaks your heart to see the images that we saw on The 7:30 Report last night I mean treating animals as disposable commodities, it’s just wrong,” said a Greyhound Spokesperson. “Nothing like that would ever happen in our industry, we love our dogs. As long as they keep winning.”
When asked whether it was a bit hypocritical for the greyhound industry to be lecturing anyone on animal welfare the Spokesperson said: “We look after our animals when they’re no longer able to run or breed we take ’em out to the back paddock and shoot them ourselves.”
“We definitely don’t send them off to no slaughterhouse, that’s just barbaric.”
When reached for comment on the horse racing controversy NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian encouraged everyone to “tune into The Everest horse race and don’t forget to gamble irresponsibly.”
