How many dogs need to die before the Minister for Racing takes action?

Sign the petition to show your support for a ban on this cruel blood sport.

Dear Anthony Carbines (Minister for Racing),

We the undersigned, fully support a ban on greyhound racing in Victoria.

In September last year, Montag Bale fell at The Meadows and was trampled by other dogs, she fractured her leg and was later euthanised. It was her second race. 

By the end of the year, 44 greyhounds had been killed  n Victoria by this cruel industry. 

This year, A $6m government funded racetrack set to promote ‘welfare’ and ‘safety’ has injured 37 greyhounds since its rebuild at the start of the year. In just one day, twelve greyhounds were injured at a single racing event and the number of dogs losing their lives on Victorian race tracks continues to climb.

These horrific statistics don’t take into account the ‘wastage’ - those killed because they didn’t make the grade or were considered superfluous through over breeding.

We urge you as the Minister for Racing, to immediately take action and ban this cruel blood sport once and for all.
