More and more information is coming to light about the cruel practices that affect thousands of animals every year.
The 2016 Parliamentary Inquiry into Greyhound Racing, initiated by the Greens, exposed rampant cruelty of that industry within Tasmania. A series of high profile incidents and recent national news has also raised serious questions about the horseracing industry.
Giving public funds to these industries encourages more animals to be bred and killed. This taxpayer funded cruelty must be stopped.
