Contact details for racing ministers around Australia: Please contact them now!

Yesterday, 28th September, 2015 was a day we need to remember. We also need to remember the date that started the significant scrutiny being placed on the Australian and New Zealand Greyhound racing industries – that date was: 16th February, 2015.

 

Both dates are significant because they have demonstrated once and for all that what many, many people have been saying about the despicable nature of the greyhound racing industry and its participants IS COMPLETELY CORRECT.

  1. It is now indisputable that thousands upon thousands of healthy, young greyhounds are killed annually as part of this gruesome industry

and

  1. thousand upon thousands of small, innocent animals are used as live bait for the training of greyhounds.

Australians are united in their disgust of this industry.

We will not allow our taxes to support criminals and animal abusers any longer.

With this very clear evidence of cruelty and corruption, governments MUST shut down the industry.

Please write to the racing MP in your state and tell them to shut it down. Your email can be very brief – just please, please spend two minutes to tell them to SHUT IT DOWN!

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.
