Well, perhaps the horses next. No end of turn over. Horses not suitable end up as 'dog meat' or fertilizer and are eaten by some.
Same with pigeons. Not good enough for racing. Ring the necks and feed to the dogs.
I know the greyhound industry is/was insidious and nasty. But so are many other animals used in racing and betting.
I bet my chickens, geese and ducks against spiders, snails, large centipedes, small snakes, redbacks and cockroaches around the house and I bet my
domestic dogs against the rats, mice and other rodents that inhabit where I live.
poor poor small mammals, insects and arachnids.
The whole flamin thing about the 'dogs' (greyhounds) is the state government has mishandled the regulations in the past and are copping out. In the
past the state made millions x millions. No distinct regulatory authorities carried about their specific tasks due to greed and backhanders ($).
Investigate the corrupt a bit more succinctly rather than the knee jerk, glossing over the top of criminal acts to save the holy respects of a few
pollies who dabbled in the doggies in the past.
For once, I ask, the New South Wales Government to go after the wealth of those who succoured the life out of its respective constituents regardless
of what political party they were beholding to.
This release only satisfies the hunger of the deserved animal rights who lobbied and got 'shut up' money but doesn't sate the majority of the plain
people of New South Wales who acknowledge that the factors leading to this decision were common knowledge to Gov officials decades ago.
So, unfortunately animals have suffered in the past, graft and corruption endured but has been satisfied by this position and the do gooders have got
their dollars and cents by waiting this long.
