NSW Shutdown a shock says Greyhounds Australasia

Thursday 8 July 2016

Greyhounds Australasia CEO Scott Parker today expressed shock that the NSW government had decided to shut down greyhound racing in that state.

“I’m shocked this has happened and disappointed for the many thousands of people in the NSW industry that have only ever done the right thing.

“It is important to note that the circumstances in each state are very different. For example, twelve months ago, the state governments in Victoria and Queensland approved recommendations from their own inquiries that would set new requirements for those industries to continue. These are mandated changes and the controlling authorities in both of these states are now significantly advanced with their reform programs.

“Several state governments have announced their strong support this afternoon for the continuance of greyhound racing.

“Since the February 2015 ‘4 Corners’ program aired, the new managers of the industry in every state and territory have made meaningful and substantial reforms. Every one of them is placing animal welfare at the centre of the decisions they are making.

“Eradicating unnecessary euthanasia is the central plank of our national vision and is being reflected in changed rules, policies, practices and standards that continue to be put in place in each state,” Mr Parker said.
