End the "profits" of greyhound live baiting

This petition had 1,702 supporters

Multiple lives are lost each training day in the greyhound racing society. Many greyhound trainers have already stood down, chosen either by themselves or by their club. This is a practice that the world can definitely live without. Though some have stood down, why is this still an issue in our country? Multiple organisations have formed together to tackle this situation and many more are withdrawing their support to the greyhound racing society. The government needs to do more and help make this message clearer to everybody. Help is needed to protect innocent creatures like possums, kittens, rabbits and piglets. They do not own a voice to express their terror. Only their squeals and screams show what they are really feeling. According to multiple laws, blooding of a greyhound is illegal and harsh penalties apply. This practice is not only “abhorrent” according to the ABC Four Corners but loathsome. Greyhounds are naturally gentle creatures, why turn them into blood lusting beasts just for some entertainment? Together we can make a difference and make this practice a thing of the past!
