Although the majority of the population in NSW approved of the ban on greyhound racing, and the Premier felt strongly...
In a surprise and welcome move, the NSW government in Australia has recently declared greyhound racing will be banned in NSW from July 1 next year. This followed expositions of extreme cruelty in the seemingly endemic use of “live baiting and the “wastage’ of up to 68,000 underperforming dogs killed over the last 12 years.
So focused is this dog on the cookie that she doesn’t realize another man holding a sack is stealing up behind her. He knows that as soon as the pooch snatches the bait, she’s going to bolt, so his timing has to be dead-on. At exactly the right moment, he throws the sack over her, gathers her up in his arms and carries her, unresisting, to the animal ambulance, where she joins several other dogs. She’s so frightened that she loses control of her bowels but the other dogs are calm so she soon relaxes. Then off they all go, dogs in the back, men in the front, the Darjeeling Goodwill Animal Shelter/One Voice ambulance continuing on its rounds.
