In 2015 our investigations with Animal Liberation Queensland into horrific live baiting exposed the rotten core of Australian greyhound racing. These shocking revelations further fuelled the determination of locals near Slack’s Creek in Queensland who had been waging a battle to stop a proposed new greyhound racing track.
These compassionate citizens have tirelessly spoken out for greyhound racing’s victims — including the helpless possums, rabbits, piglets and kittens used as ‘bait’, and the thousands of healthy dogs and puppies discarded by this ruthless gambling industry each year.
Tenacity paid off with the announcement today that there will be no greyhound racing track at Cronulla Park. Instead of spending $12.5 million taxpayer dollars on a cruel greyhound racing track for gambling, Logan Council and the QLD state government will build a sports and recreation facility for the whole community to enjoy.
