When is enough, enough? More corruption evidence regarding GRNSW .

The internal documents revealing that senior greyhound racing administrators were actively strategizing to downplay live baiting just days before the illegal practice was exposed by the ABC Four Corners program make it clear that cleaning up the industry is impossible.

Now that that there is hard evidence that GRNSW officials knew about the systemic serious animal cruelty involving the thousands of innocent victims of live baiting, there is no excuse left to keep the industry going.

Industry officials recommended QC and High Court Justice Michael McHugh to head a bogus taskforce to deflect corruption allegations and appear to be appropriately investigating the live baiting expose.

The process of having Michael McHugh appointed by NSW premier Mike Baird to lead the NSW’s government’s Special Commission of Inquiry into GRNSW calls the validity of the inquiry into doubt.

The Baird government has no option left but to shut this industry down, regardless of what an invalid commission of inquiry recommends.

We need to ask, when is enough, enough?

Watch this interview with Caro Meldrum, the ABC journalist who put together the Four Corners live baiting expose. The depth and breadth of the corruption is astounding!

I am an author, adjunct associate professor in psychology and have advocated for animal welfare for more than 15 years. On the basis of my extensive research, I can confidently argue that if we cultivate a culture of compassion toward all of our non-human citizens, including those currently exploited for human use (such as food, sport and experimentation), current and future generations will benefit through reduced antisocial and violent behaviour toward all sentient beings including humans. Over my 25-year career as an academic, I have published over 100 scholarly articles in refereed academic journals and have also conducted a number of projects examining the link between aggression toward humans and cruelty toward animals. In 2000, I founded a group within the Australian Psychological Society focused on promoting positive interactions between humans and animals. This work has resulted in several scholarly publications including a book published in 2012, titled Animal cruelty, Antisocial Behaviour and Aggression: More than a link.
