Join with Animals Australia to help stop the greyhound racing industry
Groundbreaking Animals Australia / Animal Liberation Qld investigations uncover the shocking truth of Greyhound dogs tied up, terrified, and savagely mauled in widespread ‘live baiting’ sessions. Greyhound racing authorities publicly call it ‘abhorrent’. They also say it has been ‘outlawed’. But that hasn’t stopped high profile trainers across the country from subjecting defenceless animals to barbaric live baiting rituals in an attempt to gain a ‘winning’ edge on the racetrack.
The damning Animals Australia and Animal Liberation Qld investigations have revealed that this sadistic training method is all too common. Terrified piglets, rabbits and native possums are all victims of live baiting — tied to lures, flung around racetracks at breakneck speeds, and then mauled to death. Some animals who survived their first attack were ‘re-used’ multiple times.

How you can help
How can state governments and sponsors continue to support an industry that has been exposed for such abhorrent widespread illegal activity? When greyhound racing insiders are now admitting that ‘live baiting’ is rife throughout the industry, when those exposed include the President of a racing club, ex-stewards, a two-time Australian Trainer of the Year and even a former ‘Integrity Manager’ — it’s clear that there is something seriously rotten at the heart of greyhound racing.
