I don't see too much problems with racing dogs. its less cruel than puppy farms. These dogs are built to run. If you want to ban greyhound racing then you can go right ahead and ban horse racing or equestrian events.

Humans have always enjoyed making animals compete. This is cruel and absolutely should be banned along with horse racing also. If humans want to willingly sign up and race each other that is fine but leave the animals out of it.

Greyhounds are bred to run... that is in their DNA.
It isn't the racing I'm against it's the barbaric things humans do within the Industry that disturbs me.

Time to stop making beautiful animals race for human entertainment, we disliked watching circus animals perform, and now they don't, now it's time to stop racing dogs, would be awesome if the government stopped horse racing next

Well Dog fighting is illegal. Racing them should be too.

Yes it should be. It's horrible to watch animals as a sport. I also don't agree with horse racing.

I am a dog lover and I think as long as the dogs are properly cared for it should be fine. Racing isn't as bad a dog fighting. The running allows for exercise and breeding is regulated.

An outright ban on greyhound racing is a huge mistake. Other sports where regulatory issues have taken centre stage have tackled them head-on without a blunt response like an outright ban.

Mike Baird has banned Greyhound Racing in NSW. Speechless really. Am close to this personally as my work have done the transcription of the findings. I remember when we had EI for one day & I was beside myself, but banning the sport, hard to comprehend.

I agree it should be banned. I'm not much of a dop person, but it just seems like a shady industry.
