Live export of Australian greyhounds

If you thought that the way greyhound is treated is pretty bad already and if you are among the many voices being heard to end the criminal, corrupt and horrifically cruel greyhound racing industry in the Australian states and territories, I am afraid that it gets worse for greyhounds.

In addition to the 17,000 plus being killed here. Every year, nearly 1,000 more are exported to other countries, including China and Macau and other locations where there are no animal welfare laws to protect them. Exportation of greyhounds is done under the federal jurisdiction.

The numbers of greyhounds exported can be seen in the attachment.

Please write to our federal agriculture MP – Barnaby Joyce and tell him that you want him to ban the exportation of our dogs.
