Greens: No Taxpayer Blood Money for Greyhound Racing Cruelty to Continue

Greens NSW Animal Welfare Spokesperson, Dr Mehreen Faruqi MLC, has said that the Government must not give the greyhound racing industry one cent if it is intent on lifting the ban on greyhound racing. The Daily Telegraph has reported that the Shooters, Fishers and Farmers Party and the Christian Democrats are demanding massive taxpayer subsidies for the industry or they will block the repeal bill.

Dr Faruqi said: “Any public money given to greyhound racing would be a reward for the killing of tens of thousands of greyhounds and for a culture of cover up and secrecy.
